Okay well I want to get feedback from my amp on purpose but how, my friend says go next to your amp and shake your guitar but that doesn't really work...

crank the treble and gain and stand next to the speaker.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

i leave my gain on 10 so to generate feedback i just lift off the strings

If you're next to the speaker and the volume & gain high, sometimes it helps to play a natural harmonic, wait for it to decay. The remaining string vibration will initiate a feedback loop.
#6
Your volume has to be pretty up there, gain too. It also really helps if you have a decent tube amp, they feed back a lot more easily and sound nicer than solid state feedback.

Feedback?
Gain=11
Volume=11
Mids=11
Proximity to the cab=11
Deafness afterwards=11
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

a good way is with volume high, play a note then hit the natural harmonic of the note you just played. so

For instance, play a note, then place your finger on the string 12 frets up.

so if you play a note on the second fret, third string. then place your other hands finger over the 14th fret you'll get feedback

Crank your amp and hold a note with guitar close to a speaker... if you have a real small combo amp it might not get loud enough.

Turn it up extremely loud - how much gain you use or how it's EQ'd are irrelevant, all that matters is volume.

Feedback is a physical effect, it happens when the sound pressure from the speakers is enough to keep the strings vibrating - if you're loud enough for that to happen then you'll get feedback regardless of how the amp is set.

Feedback generally occurs when a microphone starts to pickup its own signal thats coming through a speaker. Pickups are essentially little mics, so have lots of volume on your amp, lots of treble helps too, and then point your pickups towards the speaker after playing a note/chord etc. and you should get feedback

I would recommend a good tube amp. Humbuckers really help. Epi stock may do the job, but if you want rally good tone, Seymour Duncan is the way to go.

Isn't that kind of the point of getting a lot of feedback?
#20
if youre playing at low volumes you can raise the volume til it starts feeding back and then lower the volume again. The feedback will still hang in there. at low volumes it's pretty much impossible otherwise

a wah is immaterial - a tube amp helps though because solid state feedback often sounds nasty.
