me too.

sampling from movies and shit always gets me too. there's a few songs i love mostly because i love the sound clip that's in the beginning/end.

Dillinger Four probably has sound clips in 90% of their songs and i ****ing love it.

The staccato-y bits in Prog Metal songs mostly in which the keyboard player, guitarist, and possibly the bassist play in unison or each play a note after each other. The solo section of Metropolis Pt. 1 is a good example of the former. Behold The Arctopus' Transient Exuberance and Dream Theater's Erotomania are the best examples I can think of for the latter off the top of my head.

And 4 minutes into this:
or like, when they layer acoustic guitars over the electric guitars. That's awesome. Happens quite a bit in this song:



And the acoustic section at 4:25 is awesome.

I love the acoustic sections from this band.

My favourite use of this is "Sometimes" by My Blood Valentine



It's almost like the acoustic guitar sound is only there for the strumming pick attack sound, it just blends with the distorted guitar to make such a unique, smooth and pleasing sound

Actually, it may just be a recording of an unplugged electric or something, but the effect it makes is just so cool haha

Syd Barrett. He's a big gimick himself.

And his melodies, voice and lyrics are briliant.

I love when the band play one bar riff like a mantra. Also everything Van Halen/Dave Lee Roth has done.

personally i really love it when the vocals are the first thing you hear in a song, not sure if that would be considered a gimmick though

When the ending of the song is a Solo that intertwines with the vocals e.g Paradise City and Catcher In The Rye by GnR.

When the singer says something like "yeah" or "oh" and it instantly goes into a pure shred solo with no other build up.

Shred intros/outros

Guitar harmonies.

Staccato.

Harmony singing.

Pentatonic boxes (sometimes).

'Yeahs' if they're done well.

Glam-coloured guitars.
