I just bought a whammy pedal, and it hasn't arrived yet, so I was wondering if anybody could tell me if, with a pitch shifter, a single string or a double stop could almost sound as deep and full as a power chord. The only reason I ask is because it's a lot faster/easier for me to solo/riff without having to worry about hitting a powerchord, and plus I don't particularly like power chords because they're so overused, I much prefer double stops. I read somewhere that on Blue Orchid, Jack White used a whammy pedal and just hit single strings rather than powerchords, which makes sense because to play it it with p.c.s you would have to be very fast and accurate, something I haven't really noticed in White's playing. Thanks.

Yes, the whammy pedal will give you harmony with the fifth tone so you can play "power chords" only using one string.

I doubt all pedals are like that.

Anyway, try it when your pedal arrives.

BTW, a 2 note powerchord is a doublestop.
