u know what im talkin about, the sound that comes outta nowhere in many songs (e.g in the begining & end of eruption & also in the beginning of "flying in a blue dream" by joe satriani), i just dunno how to make that sound come outta nowhere like them folk do,
i tried to use the whammy bar but nothing works right, & i can't find anything on the net related to that technique,
can somebody help me out here, like how does that sound come out, what do i have to do with the guitar.
any kind of help will be highly appreciated. if there is any video clip demonstration for it then it would be a bomb!!
plz either reply the technique on this thread or email me on

i just turn the volume to zero, play the note and then slowly turn the volume knob up, making the sound fade in.

as the guy above said, just use your volume control and build it up.

either use stoat_toast's method with the volume knob, or use a volume pedal. a lot of these effects are just done using the studio after effects though and never sound quite as good live.
