Ok, you go out, and take the time to properly set up your strat so it stays in tune well, and you have fun whanging on the thing like its a floyd, and adding little tricks in your lead parts, but what songs are coverable that use such a whammy bar?

most players who use the trem bar opt for a locking/floating system, one that can bend down further/easier (I gotta keep mine tight to stay in tune, but I can still use it).

I wanna try some Van Halen stuff -- but does he use insanely deep dives or up-bends? if not thats a possibility. What about other stuff? any tabs you could point me to?

and, BTW, my trem does stay in tune. Very well actually, although I need new springs before I can set it up to do up bends (my current springs can't keep in tune when I loosen them, not strong enough.) But right now its perfect for dives.

van halen does both. but on the first cd he used a guitar with a fender trem anyways so you should have no problem with that.

You can do some Alice in Chains tricks. At the end of Nutshell is what I'm talking about.

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.
