quiet odd

but basically even if a person uses the whammy bar for a song they might not use it again on the album

its not like i dont understand your question i just think its kinda dumb its like used in 2% of songs and even in the song its used in it not a main attraction and is only short lived

I used to hate them, then I got an OFR and overused it like crazy for a couple of years to get really good at it. Now I hardly ever use it but it a very effective tool when used tastefully.

oh yeah, no Whammy on Crazy train solo, Lifeson uses them often.

No bar, just tapped bends.

To people who don't like whammy bars; please watch this video.

I strongly believe if you watch it, you'll see it can be used for more than funny sounds.

Well, he doesn't seem to enjoy it.



Paul Gilbert doesn't use them very much anymore.

I don't see why it matters. Again, the whammy bar is rarely used anymore.
