it's like a power button on your guitar, push the button, it stops transfering, so it's a way to articulate notes and such, so he doesnt have to pick them

if you have at least two Pups with a volume control for each, you can turn the volume of one to 10, and the volume of the other to 0, then switch back and forth between them while holding a note

That.

If you have a Les Paul or another guitar with individual volume switches for each pickup, you can make the killswitch effect by setting one pickup's volume to zero and using the pickup toggle switch as a killswitch.

i'd rather use a button though instead of that switch, i was thinking about making one of my own eventually.

Lets see you imitate a killswitch like that. You'll break your selector switch.

Interesting question...

in the intro, he hammer-ons the 12th fret, pulls off onto 0pen, then hits the button. it's all 16th notes at 116 tempo
