Okay... A perfect example of this would be in Dream Theater's "As I Am"

The riff right before the main riff, Petrucci hits notes that he vibratos, and then it fades into a harmonic, and sounds badass. You can tell he isn't pinching it at the end because it doesn't get louder, nor can you hear a picking sound. How does he do it? It sounds so amazing

I'm very familiar with this song; I've covered it numerous times. What he does there, actually, Is getting feedback; He'll hold the note, and obtain feedback by standing really close to his amps, which are turned up very loud.

I love you.


And thanks for the help.. makes a lot of sense. I would try it exactly, but I lack a 7 string guitar , so it doesn't sound as good.

How? It's so cool

Along with Stream of Consciousness, which I'm working on right now, but that solo is killing me all over the place.

Your vibrato needs to be pretty good to get it done!
I still have a hard time on some frets, Also depends how much gain/feedback you got. If your not getting anything back turn up the gain a little maybe. I have a EMG afterburner and it really helps ALOT with these. Theres my 2 cents. =)

It works with both active and passive pickups, uses rail-to-rail technology, and is easy to install. If you're a lead player, the Afterburner is for you"

It basically adds more gain.

Haha yeah, the more details the merrier =)

Its a nice little option to have, you can use it to boost solos to make them really stand out too.
It's like a boost pedal on your guitar. Cost about 50$ on ebay and its pretty easy to install.
