Apologies if this is the wrong forum for this:

I was messing around when I realized the short part of the strings by the bridge can be used for an alternate tremolo effect. I don't know if you guys have seen this, but play a note then with your picking hand by the bridge bend the string lightly back and forth. It sounds like any other tremolo, but I also found that it can be used to manipulate certain kinds of amp feedback. Is this bad for the guitar itself, and has anyone else seen this before?

NOTE: I do not have a whammy bar.

Please don't flame,
Thanks

well the tremolo basically does that anyway, its just the tremolo can go further. has anyone tried picking a note on, say the G string and pushing the two E strings closer to the other strings? that also works, you could also play a note and pull the low E string higher (closer to your body).

Well, what I meant was that with this you can manipulate feedback without killing it as easily. I'll have to try your way, sounds interesting.

I believe Nick McCabe used this technique alot during the Verves Psychadelic era. Like on "Gravity Grave" and "Star Sail" for example.

Check it out and tell me if that's what u mean.
