My personal favorite. I've listened to it a thousand times and it never ceases to amaze me.
For me, ex-aequo, second to none with Isaac Hayes "Theme form Shaft" : The Temptations "Papa was a Rollin'Stone"...
It's the Maestro Boomerang Wah (Hayes) vs. Morley WVO Wah (Temptations).
In 2nd position, Earl Hooker "Wah-Wah Blues" (Wah+slide) :
Another good example of the Morley Chrome Era Wahs !
But it's me, OK ?
Pete Anderson’s use of tremolo on Dwight Yoakum’s “What I Don’t Know”...
Waylon Jennings’ use of a phase shifter on “Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way” (and many other songs, too)...
Doyle Bramhall II’s use of a Leslie on the solo of “Good Time”...
Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s use of an octave on “Blue on Black”...
I have no idea how the effect was created other than max'ing out the Reverb and the Speed/Intensity, but the brief opening of the Electric Prunes "I Had Too Much to Dream (last night)." SO cool for 1966. Very psychedelic - no one had done anything like that. Not bad for a garage band from the San Fernando Valley (over the hill from Hollywood).
The coolest effect I've ever heard. Saw him play it live. He hit a pedal and it made this crazy sound.
It's a non-trem guitar.
Effect happens at 1:22 in the recording. Super Bad Ass!
Satisfaction, Rolling Stones. Just because it's the start of pedal popularity...
This guitar effect is called "Stun Guitar." This one is on Blue Oyster Cult's second album from 1974 if I recall.
The effect is on the guitar solo and starts at 2:19.
Any time the band has been asked, "What is Stun Guitar?" they all just smile and say, "ahhhh, stun guitar," and laugh it off. I know one of the original members personally, and he never told me what it was. Seems to be a closely guarded secret.
1:35 for some well-cocked wah...
I had an Echoplex EP-1, and You could do some pretty weird stuff with echo.
studio "gunshot" that starts off "Shotgun" by Jr. Walker and the All-Stars. You could probably get pretty close, live, if you lifted an amp w/spring reverb and dropped it a few inches. In stereo, gunshot is panned r to l, like instantaneously.
+1 w/tubelectron nominating Earl Hooker's slow tempo "Wah Wah Blues" - that opening moment stops clocks. ime.
hey, probably a typical amp tremolo? Buffalo Springfield "For What It's Worth" comp. Steve Stills.
Music historians please tell me exactly how Peter Green (R.I.P., Peter) sustained those notes on "Supernatural"* - wondering if he got there old-school w/o a pedal? shoulda googled that.
There u go - 4 best-evers! *w/John Mayall BluesBreakers, iirc
The Heil Talk Box contributed at least two songs to our collective Classic Rock consciousness;
Joe Walsh's Rocky Mountain Way
Peter Frampton's Do You Feel Like We Do?
I can't believe no one's mentioned Dave Davies slicing up his speaker cone with a razor blade-
That iconic guitar riff was originally conceived as a horn line. Throw a fuzz on it though, and BOOM!
one of my favorite intro's
This is iconic to this day imo:
And one of my personal favorites:
Did we already do "Rumble," and Marty Robbins' "Don't Worry?" If not... yeah, those two.
What’s the pedal used there?
Just about everything Brian May did with that iconic guitar of his!
It was by Cream on the Goodbye Cream album. I heard an old Clapton interview where he said it was an actual Leslie rotating speaker system that he controlled with a chrome pedal.
