I play a lot of pantera stuff and a lot of the time dime does these high pitch squeals in most songs, someone told me that he did those by hitting harmonics, but ive tried that and they dont squeal anything like how his do. so i was wondering if the digitech whammy pedal he used helps to get those squeals higher and louder? did he use his for that purpose?
Listen to Becoming... You'll understand.
yeah i know he used it in becoming but I want to know if he used it at other times, like in solos and when he does the harmonics
He used the whammy bar for the harmonic squeals, not to sure what he used the Whammy pedal for.
the squeals are a variation on natural harmonics, where he would dive with the bar, hit a natural harmonic, than pull the bar back and vibrato with the bar
another good song to listen to for the whammy is revolution is my name
push the whammy bar on, now hit the natural harmonic on the g string 3rd fret and release the whammy bar, should get the high pitched squeal
serbusfish, did you look at that vid I posted? It's Dime explaining how to make the squeel.
yeah I watched the vid, its just that Ive tried doing those squeals and they dont sound much like the ones he does, maybe its my amp, im getting a new amp soon, maybe they will sound better on that
