Hendrix... at least half a dozen examples on his first two albums. wa pedal and the flanger
King Crimson's Discipline and Robert Fripp and Andy Summers' I Advanced Masked are practically demonstration disks for the Roland guitar synthesizer:
In the late '60s and early '70s, there was a penchant for electric sitar solos, including lots of Motown songs, and:
or Hendrix, the wah Solo on Watchtower
Is that what The Byrd’s used in Wasn’t Born to Follow?
Andy Summers, MXR Dyna Comp, Electro Harmonix Mistress, Echoplex...oh yeah, and it starts with a Telecaster.
A favorite fuzz song.
I still like the Flanger/whammy on the Barracuda intro.
i'd give that an "iconic"
Believe it or not, that could be played without using a pedal. I've done it. My strumming hand is doing double the work The Edge's hand is doing, but it can be played without a delay pedal. Heck, most people can pick up an acoustic guitar and play "Bad" -- no pedals are used.
“Are You Experienced” influenced everything.
Seriously - every song on the ENTIRE album would have been a major hit on anyone else’s record.
If Rock has a “Kind Of Blue” it’s “Are You Experienced.”
...just my opinion Men.
Ah, that's a great example.
I play that song on my big old Gretsch.
D - D - E
But then I play it through my AC30 with the tremolo going --- WOW! Makes all the difference.
Two pages and the point is clear:
These songs wouldn't be half the songs they are if not for some effect or pedal.
Link Wray's "Rumble" without tremolo? Just a simple two chord oldie.
"Theme From Shaft" without the wah? Just a soul song.
my nomination for the best use of the least-loved effect, the Ring Mod, at 1:42
Tony Iommi’s range master in Sabbath.
Bo Diddley: Mona.
How about the greatest non-use of pedals/effects? The whole Ventures album, "In Space" from 1964, which on the jacket says, "All of these unusual & other-worldly sounds have been created with musical instruments rather than electronic gimmicks."
A Wah-Wah in “Voodoo Chile”
A Talk Box in “Rocky Mountain Way”
Frampton came alive with the talk box as well.
