That i can do. lol. I picked that up from you a few years back. Thanks.
Had one for a relatively short time in 1980-81. Hated it. Never looked back.
Got it right in 2018:
Awesome. You should make an album of that kind of stuff.
I use the 6-screw on my EJ to shimmy and the Floyd on my superstrat to shake
After avoiding learning how to use one well for 40 years, I finally started focusing on using my twang bar last year. Now it's fully incorporated into my playing; can't believe I didn't use them for so long. I bought two new Strats and two PRS SEs so I have plenty of guitars with trems now.
Any time I pick up my guitar. Used a few more worbles than normal in this vid as I was testing my new VS100
I got interested in how at types of vibrato had different “feels,” so I use my shimmer stick frequently, even playing single note lines.
I'm fortunate if
My right gets where it is supposed to
My left gets where it is supposed to
There is no time for anything else
Yes I do. Nothing too much just to add some shimmer.
Of my four strats, only one (a mij with a scalloped neck) has the bar even screwed in
and that one gets played very rarely. I go to my Floyd equipped Jackson or ESP when
I want play with the bar.
I use it a lot but mainly for subtle vibrato different from my finger technique,
If you've got one it's obligation.
It's essential to most of what I do.
No locking stuff. Trad six screw bridge plate setup right.
All the time on outfitted guitars.
All the time. For shimmer and for bends. The key for me was to find the optimal length whammy bar, with the perfect angle, so that I can cradle it in my hand constantly. I find the standard Fender bars to be not so great for this (a bit short and too angled). I play finger style.
I use one, sometimes. Most of my strats are decked to the point where the trem is basically disabled. Easier for alternate tunings and just like the feel better. But I have a strat with a floating trem for when I want it. Essential for surf music.
I do most my vibrato with my fretting hand and a lot of chord shimmer by bending the neck, but I also use the Whammy Bar. Sometimes it's what you need.
How many? Like ... total?
I just bought my first guitar with a wiggle stick, a strat clone, and I've only used it to flavor a minor triad so far. Not sure that I'm going to ride it like a rented pony the way Jeff Beck does.
