    Too much wah?

    It's the second song called Milky Way. Hate to say it but this is a rather boring acoustic rendition of the 80s song. Nothing special at all.

    I just bought a wah and wanted to add it to this song. It's somewhere around the middle and the end part of the song.

    I thought it added a funky quality to the song but now I'm not sure if it even needs to be there. The whole things still needs a lot of work - especially my wah playing.

    I'm no lead guitar player that's for sure. Let me know what you guys think.

    woah, yeah man keep that! Nice, nice, it makes the song. mabe if you add little sections of wah after the 1st middle part just a short "wahhhhahhwahhh" in there and maybe in the last chorous before the ending wah you double it up with the clean guitar (the clean guitar still dominating it of course though).



    but yeah, not bad man.

    Hey Sage97,

    The wah is a very sweet effect when used in the right context, I think you used yours in just the right context, very fitting of the song!

    The wah can give a very fluid sounding effect, I love the wah!

    Nice work, very subtle use of the pedal!

    I have a tune on my Soundclick page called "Hyperactive Wah Wah" where I used the pedal all the way through it!

    Thanx for sharing with us Sage97.

    You guys are too kind. Really appreciate the compliments.

    hrwmusic,

    Will try to add a little bit more wah as you recommended.

    Gorty,

    Will check out your hyperactive wahwah when I get home. Can't from work.

    Thanks again.

    Nice tune man...excellent vox. Nice guitar tone. (I also dug Seether.... )

    Again, nice vox. How'd you record, and process them? They sound very natural, but sit very well in the mix. For such a sparse tune, you got it all sounding very good man. The wah is NOT too much. You used it as an effect, and it enhances the tune well.

    Excellent man.........

    Dogman,

    You certainly have the best avatar I have ever seen. Didn't you use to have a yellow bus or something?

    I used an NTK for the vox through RNC and RNP into an AKAI DPS 16. That's pretty much it.

    Seether was an experiment with 2 OD pedals and different settings on an EQ pedal. All mic'd with a 57.

    Primarily a vocalist, I know my playing needs a lot of improvement but I'm practicing guitar like crazy.

    Thanks for listening.

    I have those two......what's missing is natural talent.

    But that's never stopped me before so I'll keep trying.
