k, In this video the lead guitarist uses some kind of effect to create really cool swelling sounds, I for the life of me cannot figure out how it is done, if anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

At what part in particular?


oh sorry, the intro, he kneels down and fiddles with something on his pedal board while tremolo picking the open high e.

you mean where the pitch drops?

my guess is a digitech whammy but with some sort of external pitch control

that or a POG


or a HOG

Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

Ok, it sounds like he is using a looper to stack the different guitar parts and then uses a Digitech Whammy to dive the notes down 2 steps and then back up to the original note.

yeah, that bit, but he's also got some sort of delay effect on it, the tab book for the album calls it a delay loop, but I have no idea what it is, my initial thought is that it could be a kaoss pad

It could be that too. You don't have to bend down with a Digitech Whammy just use your foot. WIth a POG or a HOG you'd have to reach down and turn the knob since niether of those use an expresstion pedal, I think.

i know russell definately uses a POG, but i thought you'd just be able to increase the volume of the octave, not the pitch of the additional note

It sounds like he's only keeping the wet pitch, so it would mean he's adjusting the pitch of the original note.
