    Wow, thanks Joseph! Like I said, it's easy when the material makes it a cripple in the corner pocket. :)

    12 wah's...so you only need about 87 more to be up to TGP standard for the year?

    But isn't that the way of it? You go through all this fancy custom gear and end up back at a good old retail standard like the Polka Dot. Must be an obscure appellate court decision on some clause in Murphy's Law...

    Great video Joe! Well recorded and clear. Really got to hear the Wah's quality. Good playing. Looked chilly there!!! But you heated it up.....

    My fingers hurt watching you play in the cold and you still make it soulful and effortless. It was fun watching the kids watch you play. Great post!

    Don't know ... it was done for a local TV show montage
    & they kindly gave it to me on DVD disc afterwards ...

    There's another one too ...:YinYang

    A little too "drifty" for my tastes, lol...........:Devil

    Anywhoo, soundin cool Joe! I'm no expert on the wah's, but clean like that reminds me of the old Morley wah, pretty wide sweep and almost dips in volume on some frequencies, gets a kind of swell to it too. Last wah I had was when I was a kid, a Farfisa wah which didn't have a real big sweep, but sounded great in front of a crunchin amp. More of a foot tone control almost.......

    The Hamonica guy, lol. Now if I could only just do the look to get em to sit out, hahaha......jeeez......

    And another thing......

    Hey nice tele! New? Whatcha got in it, etc. Been thinkin of getting a tele shaped body w/some buckers and a floyd. Had an old ESP tele with a mahogany body, maple top & a maple/rosewood neck. You would think it would sound completely different, but it still had that tele twang (but a lot fatter)...wish I still had it....

    Yeah ,,, that "too drifty" comment was a first ... but it's proof he has good ears. :YinYang

    That Buddy Guy wah can be a very expressive too ... bet you'd have fun with it ...!!

    The City has five me strict instructions to not let Cat's who live on the street near the ocean sit in with me ...
    Once you do, then they surround you & ward off potential sales for the Farmer's Market vendors ...

    Sorry, but it sounds too out to me. I understand playing outside, but there's usually more of a tension release thing happening, which I don't hear in that clip. I hear tension without a satisfying resolution in some of your lines.

    Was there supposed to be a 100% positive only consensus?

    Nothing personal really. If you want, send me the backing track and the changes and I'll be happy to have a go at it. And you can critique it all you like. :)

    Oh I wasn't being negative toward your comment at all ...
    In fact I welcomed it .. plus I honestly meant it when I said U have good ears ...
    was not trying to be facetious ...
    It's not the first time someone doesn't hear like I might ...
    & that's totally cool ...

    We all hear things differently ... thank God ...

    I was poking a little fun, cuz if you want too "drifty" or "out", I could point him in a few different directions, lol....

    True, one man's slightly out may be another's "way out there" or "too out there" or vicey versey, and sure, if we all heard things the same, a pretty booo-ring place this would be....

    Joe, this clip is going to make me buy a Buddy Guy Wah. How does it work without the compressor?

    U would sound extremely cool using this very clean wah ...
    Hell no it doesn't need a compressor,,, that's just part of my pedal arsenal..

    Glad to be an influence upon U, Chuck on the other guys ...
    A good clean wah like this also comes close to working a bit like a volume pedal ..
    Really fun to play with ...:YinYang
