are you talking about how the sound is manipulated and the technical jargon? if so, someone's bound to stumble across this i guess...

oh and it's, "you can have ANYTHING you want, but you better not take it from me"

sorry...AFD was my first CD i ever owned, and for a couple months was the ONLY one i had, so i know it like the back of my hand haha.

a wah wah pedal changes the equalization of your guitar signal. you rock it back and forth and it adds more bass, and then more treble, which provides a "wah wah" sound. is that what your looking for?
#7
A good example of a wah pedal would a lot of METALLICA's recent solos, the one that is probably the most easy to notice would the solo from "Unforgiven III" from Death Magnetic.
#8
A wah is a sliding bandpass filter. Heel down it passes low frequencies. Toe down it passes and boosts high frequencies. Your vocal cavity acts as a bandpass filter as well. That's why wah and envelope filter effects can mimic vowel sounds.
#9
It affects mainly the middle frequencies, give it that vocal quality. Heeldown it's boosting low mids and by the time you've rocked it forward it's boosted the mids all the way to the high mids.

Good little saying there, never heard that one.

TS, two very famous wah songs are Voodoo Chile (Jimi Hendrix) and White Room (Cream). Go listen to those songs for examples of what they sound like. For Voodoo Chile, its right in the intro, and in White Room its in one (maybe both) solos.

Sarcasm?

I don't know who said it, but it definitely applies to that guy.
