No, he doesn't use a talk box, its a Wah pedal, and a combination of him sliding and Whammy bar.

Im assuming Jack's right because its sounds like he knows what hes talking about. But you could use a talkbox and get the effect pretty much, those run for around $150 i think maybe.

I have not heard that particular song. But if it is the same thing as his song Butler's Bag than it is definitely a wah and whammy thing going on and not a talkbox. Though yeah I suppose you could do it with a talk box.

Yes. You can buy one for like 150-200 bucks... or make one for thirty as I did. Just google "make talk box" and lots of stuff will come up.

Yankee Rose intro is a wah pedal, not a talk box. It's basically a G minor pentatonic lick played with lots of micro-bends to mimic the small pitch variations in speech patterns. For the "conversation" with David Lee Roth ascend and descend crhromatically between the 18th & 15th fret on the B string, wavering the bar slightly to get that vocal quality and sweeping the wah over several notes, rather than individual ones. For that signature "laughing" phrase, simply play a descending chromatic lick from the 18th fret downwards, bending each note slightly and "wahing" each note, as in around a 1/4 step. It's important to not make all the bends the same, and to keep the timing loose, a human laugh has a rhythm, but it's not rigid.

That song just made it into my #1 most played song slot on iTunes today, even though it's 14 mins long. I've always wondered too how he got that effect. Can someone explain how one uses a talkbox.

I know it's wrong (just throwing out there), if you crank your amp and put your throat on the back of the guitar neck it kind of amplifies your voice.

He looks at it squarely and says:

A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel plans. So, the husband left Minneapolis and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day. The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an email to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error, sent the email.

Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory following a heart attack. The widow decided to check her email expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted. The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:

To: My loving wife

Subject: I've arrived Date: April 6, 2006

I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I've just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then. Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.

P.S. sure is freaking hot down here!!!!!

It's definatley no talk box. The whole convo with diamond dave is done with mostly bends and wah and a little bit of whammy bar in places but you don't need the bar if you're smooth with ure bends. I've just learnt to play yankee rose and i ain't been this happy since my first boner.

Just kidding.
