hey guys, i figured this is the right forum for this

i just want to know how giutarists manage to manipulate feedback so precisely

examples

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1hgRDRc3ug - intro

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hw6W2oU2ovE - intro and from 2:37

hes practically playing the song with feedback alone

i've seen them both done live too (he uses a semi acoustic btw) (i have one too btw)

so yea, any tips would be nice

cheers,

Steve

EDIT: >_> just saw the other similar thread, is it all about positioning? nothing else?

It's all about practise and tone. Higher bass gets more of a rumble, trebles get more of a squeal. That's it in a nutshell basically.

I don't know, it's very skilled, but it is all about their pedals and their tone.

just had a thought

if you were to use enough gain and stand close enough to the amp so a note feedsback straight away, could you use volume swells to create the same effect?

You can cheat by fitting a fernades sustainer but its all about positioning of the guitar and volume of the amp, its better to save money and annoying your neighbours

yeah its about positioning, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xcPJmpn8dI look at where the 2nd guitarist is standing in this live performance of my party at 35 seconds into it, he is right near the amp.

i do not know how to perform this skill well other than positioning and similar things that have been mentioned but even so it is very basic and mediocre, but if you like that listen to more of Jimi Hendrix's stuff, especially from the Experience he masters the control of feedback.
