Hey all,

I'm having trouble with the whammy bar... I'm just no good at it. How do I get to whammy really fast? Is it just practice?

Thanks

umm is it a floating trem you cant do massive dive bombs and pull ups on a standard trem only like a more subtle vibrato

Standard Strat type trem... I don't even know what pull-ups and dive bombs are, I just want to use the vibrato aspect of it... like in the first parts of Knights of Cydonia by Muse

practice. you have to be real sensitive - you dont wanna change the pitch too much.

is he using the whammy during KOC? i cant remember his guitar having one. i cant remember noticing the bar hanging off his guitar but of course i could be wrong. he spends the whole time jumping aruond its kinda hard to notice!!

It says in the tab I'm using to use the whammy bar... it's the part after the kind of "surfer" style tremolo picking down-slide.

If there's no bar, does this mean he uses some kind of pedal that can do this?

His guitar is awesome btw, it has a built in Zvex Fuzz Factory

I think Matt uses a whammy pedal rather than a whammy bar.
