I'm learning this for an upcoming gig. Any ideas?
Wah. Check in the Effect forum.
I'd just use wah or phase. It'll be close enough.
Yup, wah. Maybe a lightly cranked dirt/tubescreamer as well.
Mick Mars did that live for the last decade or so during the end of Kickstart My Heart & it worked.
I would give it a try using wah...I've used wah for years doing Joe Walsh's Rocky Mountain Way. Add a little delay and with some practice I've gotten it to sound great.
phase 45, and a deep throaty way like the Custom Audio Electronics wah, or the Cantrell wah.
I used to use wah. Close enough if you do it right.
I leave my tone-sucking wah anymore and just do the tune.
Who in the audience is gonna come up and complain?
Just play the notes and don't worry about it? I could hear a pick scrap after the notes might be enough, but personally I wouldn't worry about it.
Have the keyboard player do the talkbox parts.
Buy a used Rocktron Banshee or Dunlop talk box from Craig's List for around $100, get a clean new hose for it, and a patch chord to your pedalboard. Run the hose of the talk box up the mic stand to your vocal mic, turn on talk box, put tube in your mouth, play the notes on the guitar for "Living On A Prayer" & vocalize those notes from the tube into the mic.
Those of you using a wah or phase pedal are doing it wrong. That's like trying to play "Rocky Mountain Way" with a wah or phase pedal. It doesn't sound right and it's the wrong tool for the wrong job!
It'll be recognized if you play it right. Use a wah pedal if you have one.
Score a used Zoom G9tt sumpin'. It had a two axis pedal that worked great with the talkbox built in.
Use a wah and fake it at the mic.
Maybe a guitar player will notice, but it’s not likely anyone else will.
How many people do you think actually know he’s using a talk box (or even what one is)?
Tell them you left your lead guitar at home and this is how it’s played on a rhythm guitar.
throat sing the part.
flanger. nobody complains
