Thanks.

Also, get your hands on some Cream albums. Can't go wrong with Cream. The bridges in the second verse of White Room sound great and are pretty easy to learn.

The "proper" way to play that solo is with a pitch shifting pedal (Digitech whammy pedal). A wah does not actually vary the pitc.

And, like GJ! said, Tales of Brave Ulysses is a good one. One of my favourite Cream songs. I would've said that one myself but I'd imagine it might be a little hard for a beginner. I know it took me a long while until I could really get the strumming/pedaling interaction going smoothly.

Also, if you are still considering which wah to buy check out the Dunlop crybaby. With a $5 investment on a few resistors and capacitors, the crybaby will give most other wahs a real run for their money. Mine's got the "midrange boost", "sweep increase" and a potentiometer installed (replaced the 33kohm in-series-with-the-inductor resistor to a 1.7kohm resistor + 100k lin pot) on the side to control the depth of the wah effect from a light tremolo-like effect to an insane, deep, talk-like sweeping sound.
