Not sure about the thread title, but basically whenever I let go of my whammy bar, it drops back down and swings around a lot. On live shows, I see players with a whammy bar let go of it and it just stays in place. How can I do this?
Call me Andrew. It's my name.

Be a man and tighten it down better.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.
You can get medicine for that. Seriously there are cures for your erectile disfunction.

It depends on style whammy bar/bridge you have.

if you have a non-floyd rose trem, just screw it in further. no sexual pun intended there. if its a FR or an edge, there's a small allen screw thing under where the bar goes, lif the FR and tighten it.
wrap PTFE tape (Teflon tape) a.k.a. the white tape around a blue holder around your whammy bar, then screw it in.
