At the very end of the song Get Out Of My Yard, Gilbert literally says into his pickup: "Get out of my Yard", and the pickup acts like a mic. Anyone know if anything in particular is needed to achieve this (ie active pickups, bridge or neck pickup)
Funny words.

^ No, you just have to say it loud. I'd imagine more sensitive pickups probably help a bit. I haven't heard his new ablum yet, so are yousure it wasn't a talkbox he was using? Think Peter Frampton, Bon Jovi (livin' on a prayer), etc.

if you take the ear piece to a phone and put it up to a pickup and talk into another phone (that's connected to it) you can hear it very clearly thru your amp, without shouting

And yeah, the human capo idea is brilliant, he's pretty damn innovative

Pretty basic humbucker pickups with a lot of gain should do the trick.

I wonder how much presure he will be under when he does it live? And does he get paid for it?

you can take the guitar and put the strings on the neck against your adams apple and it should work

I don't think you hear that throught the amp tho. Everytime I've heard someone yelling through their pickups it hasn't been very audible.

Unless he breathes iron, no. Pickups work on magnetic vibrations, he must be shaking the strings with his mouth.

I think in the case of Paul Gilbert, it's more likely that he breathes iron

Just messed around with it and if you rest your lips on the pickup and talk, you can hear yourself.
