this might be kinda hard to understand or a little weird so bear with me...

ive got this idea for a song in my head. i want it to start off with a sound similar to water dripping like from a sink or faucet. ive experimented a little with a phaser and a rotary effect but its not really giving me what i want. can anybody help me out with this?

I think what you're looking for is a chorus with the knobs dimed, and some reverb, maybe a little tremolo. Then, don't play the strings so much as flick them. Try not to play notes, instead just get a little "blip" of input to the effects and let them take over.

Delay, Reverb, Chorus. Touch the pickup with the string.

Try looking at the end of Tender Surrender by Steve Vai.

delay and reverb. you dont want to really hit a note, just a little muted "click" sound. ive done this before and it sounded pretty cool. also, i dont know exactly how you are using this, but im sure if you wanted you could find an actual sample of water making noises lol

indeed, Delay and Chorus.... maybe some reverb. Tap the side of your pick against the strings in between your pickups... i think that will do the trick

Try a random arpegiator, or a stepped phaser with delay...it works wonders
