Groundbreaking development my friend. You are quite the pioneer.

But joking aside, it does sound pretty kick ass.
The guitar is something you can take on the beach, put on the plane, take it to the bedroom…and if you have a fight with your wife, it’s the first thing you reach for. It’s a psychiatrist, a maid, a prostitute, it’s everything. - Les Paul

Yes, I have done that.

And because you're grammar is bothering me, it's 'I', 'with', 'about', 'messing', 'some', 'simultaneously', 'you', 'have', and 'kicks'.

Sorry, I had to do it.

But about the whammy thing, I've done it with my hand, but never thought to put it under my arm.

Why feel the need to correct his grammer? Anyway he does say 'about'..."I put the bar about midway..."

Either way I've never tried this either, but I usually use my fingers for the bar- they usually hover over that area anyway.

Btw yes, it does sound awesome!

Cool! I just tried it, sounds good. I was just pushing it slowly down with my arm. Not too much left to invent on guitar, that's a new one to me!

Was doing it a week ago..

I sincerely hope one day you look back at this post and realize how ignorant you're being about the concept of getting high.

Out of those choices, I'm going to go with the Bastrapple.

You can tap with your hand on the whammy too, or one hand tap, or use an effect to do the whammying for you.

Isn't anything new.

Too bad Randy Rhoads beat you to it on the song 'I Don't Know' more than 25 years ago. Im sure it's been done before then though. The latest technique i've seen is the "Harmonic Tap Bend". Now thats a hard trick to get down.

What the Grunge-haters think is just mindless musical nonsense, in reality is the restoration of the old rule of harmony to not write an entire song in one tonality/key

He also says 'bout two days ago' in the first or second sentence......

Still, it does sound pretty cool, now try doing it with all tapped harmonics

This is nothing new..but definitely innovative. You are indeed finding your own way as a guitarist.

Congratulations on your efforts. Keep rockin out.
