    usually the right, but honestly i can do it with both pretty well. sometimes i jump on it with my left if makes the timing easier.

    I'm much better with my left, but I've been working on getting my right foot just as good, because in tight spaces where my right foot is the only option, ts hard to cross over, as the wah is on the right side of my board.

    I usually use my right foot, but I have recently been experimenting with the other foot. If I play a gig with a lot of wah work, I find one leg aches a bit after the gig. So I need to work out the other side a bit!

    I'm ambidextrous and use both equally.

    left footed but use my right as it's on the right of my chain. not a particularly complex control skill I don't think.

    Get on the good foot! FTW!

    Right foot, here. Until recently I never bothered with wahs, but I got the hang of it pretty quick. It seems to work best if you treat it like a rhythm instrument and rock it in time with the beat.

    yeah i think i'm noticing that, with my tele i like using my right a little more, but with the strat it fits against my body better and so using my left foot works better.


    i think i might just have to redo my board and stick the wah and volume in the middle so i can use both.

    anybody do anything weird with their wah and volume? i have a friend who has a board over the two so he can do volume/wah swells

    Bad Ass :AOK

    I tend to use my right foot most of the time. Other times ill use a digitech whammy with right and wah with left, rocking back and forth on both in different patterns....if that makes any sense.

    I wha with both foots.
    Why?
    Because the sound different. I have a different feel with left foot and right foot. Discovered it on a gig a long time ago when my wha were a lottle displaced. Since then I try both in studio and pick the foot that feels right. :)
