I need to know how John Frusciante does that shredding-like effect he uses it live a lot. a good example is the suck my Kiss Woodstock 99 solo
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBuGjGrQVTM or in at the end of the Dani California solo and plenty of his other live solos.
Waht effects does he use?, what techniques? or anything else. Please Help. Thanks in advance

You mean as in the latter part of the Dani California solo? I too would like to know how he does this.

I've never smoked before but it looks like fun.

Sounds like some heavy chorus/flanger plus a wah or phaser on top of it. Plus I think he really is just picking it that fast, or scratching all the strings at once and just muting what he doesn't want to ring.

Um...he's just playing fast with some wah and fuzz/OD. Nothing too hard to figure out or replicate.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

in that particular version it sounds like chorus+wah+overdrive along with the natural od of his amp

does he have some kind of tampon fetish? and I didnt really need to see the naked guy either, maybe he is shredding though I couldnt find what part you were talking about though



i believe the tampon idea was kiedis....but you never know....

and yes, that throaty sound is sometimes him trem picking everything, including the open string while he isnt fretting them (see the suck my kiss studio solo for this concept)


^^^ didnt mean to sound so.....know-it-all...sorry 'bout that. i mean, like i guess that is where some of that throaty sound is from.
#11
yeah its mostly coming from just quick playing i think, with whatever distortion/overdrive he's using, but the most important bit's teh quick playing.

umm...skill?

the man can indeed play fast, you know.

Yeah, I don't know how or why nobody knows that Fruciante is a top notch guitarist...but he's a top notch guitarist, you'd think nobody had ever heard him play before. But yeah, 1. he's a badass with a guitar, 2. it sounds like his pickups are out of phase.
#13
Okay, I finally figured it out. I plugged my big Muff before my Vox wah and then turn on another distortion pedal, and an Overdrive. and Voila shred it's amazing.

Quote by John Frusciante
I played the original solo when we recorded the basic tracks, and then doubled it later, except for the super-fast wah part at the end, which was too difficult to double perfectly, so I put that section through a Delta Labs Effectron II digital delay set to a quick delay with just a touch of slow modulation.


For the Dani California solo.
