    Here Comes The Sun - The Beatles
    The solo in Let It Be - The Beatles


    This is where my rotary knowledge begins and ends (even though I have a rotary sim pedal :oops:)

    Would love to know some other examples

    I just got the edition of Guitar World with Keith Ricahrds on the cover. Good article on Peter Frampton. Frampton Comes Alive has the leslie rotary speakers all over it. I think there is one on Let It Loose on Exile as well.

    Wow! Stones and rotary pedals - there's two things I wouldn't have put together, I'll listen to that record when I get home from work!

    Yeah, Walsh and/or Don Felder ran an acoustic 12-string through one for Hotel California. It's heard the best on the intro.

    "Any Colour You Like" off Dark Side of the Moon. One of Gilmour's parts is heavily saturated with an overdriven Leslie.

    It Don't Come Easy by Ringo as played by George Harrison.
    The bridge part to Badge as played by Clapton. It sounds like Harrison but both say it was Clapton so I'll go with that. Either way, sound very cool!

    Perfect Timing! I just got my T Rex viper in the mail literally yesterday. Pink Floyd uses it in a few tunes also....can't forget machine gun also by Hendrix. Does anyone know anything about the viper? I got it for 150 which I thought was a steal because I saw it at most places for 300+

    Zakk Wylde usualy gets a nice "leslie" sound. Don't know about the studio work but live he uses a Rotovibe.

    I like this songs (and some more from Ozzy's record Ozzmosis):

    I remember reading somwhere that JLV used a SS Peavey with built in effects for "Hillbillies". No Leslie or Vibratone.
