Topic starter  

Just bought a crybaby pedal, been playing around with it for the last few hours and havin allot of fun with it. Does anyone know any good song's that showcase the use of the wah pedal so I can learn some other peoples technique with it?

I think the earliest hit single to feature wah-wah - in the UK anyway - was Dave Berry's "The Crying Game"....played by a guy called "Big Jim" Sullivan......

Was Big Jim the guitarist on the Tom Jones show back in the 60s?

There's a track on the latest Satriani album called "Souls of Distortion" that uses a ton of wah. Album is "Is There Love In Space?"

"There's no easy ways man," he said. "You gotta learn the hard parts for yourself."

If you look at it just about all of them use a wah, Santanna, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eddie van Halen, Jimmy Page and many others, most 70's songs used a wah.

:D

The solo on Dazed And Confused has some wah pedal in it, though you'll probably also need a violin bow for full effect...
