Okay so I was watching this Underoath video of them in the studio and there's a part where they show the guitarist tracking and he gets the amp to feedback instantly. I want to know how to do this. I know it has something to do with volume level, gain and how close you are to the amp but when I try this it usually takes a few seconds for it to happen and when it does, it's always gradual.

Any tips?

Here's a link to the video if it helps:

There are just spots where you are in relation to your amp that give good feedback. There is also a pedal that gives instant feedback at any pitch you can play. Volume and gain are always helpful.

Looking at the video, it looks like he's very close to a loud amp with high gain.

More info please?

It depends on so many factors. Most professional players have techs who walk around before shows and find where the good feeback spots are and mark them. You have to find them for your room/set up/ volume/ everything. It's not a sure thing, you just have to experiment. I rarely move my amp and I've found a few really good spots that I've marked off.

Fernandes sustainer or a sustainiac will work

I turn my amp up, engage my distortion pedal (although, gain is only at 1/4 to 1/2), and I can get infinite sustain immediately.
Feedback will follow if I move a bit closer - but not too close - to my amp.
