    Anybody? I think we're going to cover this and I'm looking for a toy that will let me "fake" it in a practical way on the gig.

    Anyone tried to fudge it with a seek-wah or some other goodie?

    Results?

    Thanks-

    Have you heard the Van Halen version off of Live: Right Here, Right Now?
    No effects. Not quite like the original, but very passable.

    Try the Moog MurF - will take only a few moments to dial in that sound :)

    the seek wah really wouldnt sound the same due to it having the wrong envolope style.


    I'm 90% sure that the original track was cut with a lowrey organ and a tremolo. You could use those :) hehe.

    I think you could fake it with a square wave trem.

    I use a square wave trem with a phazer and a flanger and a drummer who can play in time with the two.

    It's easy to take the part off the CD as audio before the drums come in. Place it in an audio editor and extend the length based on beat matching. Burn it to a CD and use a Discman with volume pedal jacked into an amp.

    Crazy talk, a drummer that plays in time. I mean rare and expensive pedals are one thing, but the actual wholly grail?

    It was actually an EMS VCS3 synth. A square wave trem with a phaser would be the easiest way, but the Chopper and the MuRf will probably get you closer.

    Pete explains it best:

    The ending is very similar to Nigels description of Lick My Love Pump.

    That's a really cool video. Where did that come from?

    That clip of Pete is from the Classic Albums series for the album, Who's Next.
    To dirtyguitar, the Seek Wah doesn't really get there, the Seek Trem is a better option, perhaps with some added filtering to get you even closer. But a hard, choppy trem is a great starting point.

    Out of curiosity, what are the chords to that intro? Most sites don't seem to have it, probably because most people don't try to play it.

    Put the pick down and use your fingers.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. Someone else said to use your fingers instead of a pick also. I heard Cowboy Mouth cover this once and that's how they did it.
