Work of Hendrix, Page, Belew Listed Among 10 Weirdest Guitar Sounds Ever Recorded
Apart from delivering mean chops, a portion of the guitar's charm comes from the axeman's ability to deliver odd sonic patterns, or weird sounds.

Such sounds were the topic of Guitar World's recent Top 10 list, which featured work of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, King Crimson's Adrian Belew and much more.

Human voice emulation, peculiar divebombs, unorthodox pitches and even some elephant talk, it's all there, check out the full list below.

10. Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page - "Happenings Ten Years Time Ago"

9. Johnny Marr (The Smiths) - "How Soon Is Now?"

8. Eddie Van Halen - "Eruption"

7. Paul Gilbert (Racer X) - "Solo" From "Live Extreme, Vol. 1"

6. Tom Morello (RATM) - "Revolver"

5. Buckethead - "Dead Man Walking"

4. Jimi Hendrix - "The Star Spangled Banner"

3. Steve Vai - "Next Stop Earth"
