Hi, i'm new on here, hello everyone, just wondering whether anyone can help me please. I'm trying to figure out what effects are used on the lead guitar in the song 'Be Alright' by Zapp? Link to song below. It's the sound that's a bit like a cat's meeow. Thanks.

Sounds like the guitarist is using the volume knob on the guitar while bending the strings. Either the volume knob or a volume pedal;either will give sweeping increase in volume while hiding the initial attack of pick-against-string.

Listen to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMcjPZgK9GM starting at around 2:07
