What are some crazy whammy tricks that you know and can perform?

The craziest I know of is raising the guitar with the whammy bar, naw, that's not too extreme, there are much more crazier things out there.

Quick note; don't do any of these moves on a vintage type tremelo and expect it to stay in tune.
Posers are like punks, except they do it for fashion

notUG PUNK FORUM PRESIDENT!

Turn the whammy bar 180 degrees from its normal posistion, so its facing away from the headstock.

Play a pinch harmonic, then push the whammy bar down really fast, then push your hand off the bar, so it goes back to its normal posistion really really fast.

listen to alter bridge - metalingus for this effect (its in the chorus)

I saw Dimebag doing that in a instruction video. Never tried, since I don't have a FR. Hate 'em.

You can do it with a strat style bridge, just use your whammy bar the other way. Except the sound of the harmonic will get deeper rather than higher.

ugh, if you can tell me how to transfer audio cassette to a digital audio file i will post the craziest crap you've ever heard

btw, it's stuff i recorded about 13 years ago. 2 tracks onto a 4-track recorder.

otherwise, unless you have a floyd i don't see how you're gonna do it. and no, it's not dive-bomb crap either.

Ok I have a junk vintage trem, with the "L/H, SRV Trem arm - gold" (gold as in colorwise btw) and I have tried CRAZY MOFO things with it before and it still hasn't broken, I also tried lifting the guitar and shaking it like there is no tmr and the bar is still intact with the guitar in one piece.

Is it safe to continue such actions or should i stop?
Tuning issus aren't a problem.
