Frank Zappa was pretty handy with a wah pedal... use of wah and feedback in this track is awesome imo, but if you're not a Zappa fan you will really hate it :)


Zappa stinks! He stinks so good:



2:46 for everyone who can't wait to get to the good stuff 👃

Cream "Tales of Brave Ulysses" is a personal fav.

I chased that wah sound (which is similar to Hendrix' "Still Raining Still Dreaming" and "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" wah) for years until I got a RMC6 Wheel of Fire. That was my Holy Grail, and I finally found it.
It does remind me of Hendrix's style. For you young'ins, here it is..

I agree. With regard to wah, Clapton and Hendrix is a chicken/egg situation. Those guys pioneered it, and really no one else ever surpassed their coolness with it.
