Inspired by Jake E. Lee, what are some techniques a whammyless-warrior could use to get a similar sound? I know about neck bending, and using the tuning pegs, but any other ideas? Something a little more practical maybe?

If you want to bend up I hit a harmonic and push on the string behind the nut. Ala Iron Maiden Fear of the dark.

In this video at ~1:15 or so its a decent way to show how it sounds. I know Micheal Paget does this in the solo of "Waking the Demon" when playing live...
I'll try to explain further if I wasn't clear enough.

That was my first thought.

I just use pre-bends and slides. Slides mainly for the bigger distances that I can't bend to. You could try wearing a ring on your fretting hand and using it as a slide, too.

Here's another thing discovered by accident one day. Hit a natural harmonic on any fret and add some vibrato just before the note ends.

I forgot about that, but everytime I do that, the string goes sharp. Anyway of doing that and then releasing it back to normal? Like hitting G open, then go to Ab, then go back to G?
