    i can set the delay properly but is there any effect i can use to simulate the volume knob on/off swell effect that eddie uses when playing this...i can play the notes but just can't seem to master the volume knob twisty thing he does to make it sound right

    Some type of volume envelope effect like a Boss Slo Gear used with the delay may get you closer. Also, some delays, like the DL4 have the volume swell effect in conjunction with the delay.

    I remember reading somewhere that he used a volume pedal in the studio and the volume knob on his guitar live. Have you tried a volume pedal?

    The newer boss 500 series volume pedals are excellent for this.

    just practice... imo, it would be harder to play this piece using a volume pedal than just working the volume knob....

    my two cents
