Hey all- Happy July 4th weekend!

I've been working on my tremolo technique with my 91 Strat Plus to try to make it sound like a slide guitar by using the tremolo bar as I pick. If you have a spare couple of minutes, please listen to the below recording and let me know what you think. Does it make you sea sick, or am I getting there? :)

Thanks!

Cool and interesting. If I didn’t know you were using the trem, I would have thought slide. As I knew you were using the trem, I could hear it, but most of it was very convincing! Great playing! :cool:

Oh that is definitely whammy bar material with that Strat tone galore! Jeff Beck couldn't have played it any better. It still sounds good and does have a slide vibe to it. But I play like that a lot since I my Wang bar is angled pretty high on my 1998 American Standard. I have the bridge set to floating where it is 3mm off the body so when I pull it up the G string goes up 3 steps to A#. The second string goes up 2 frets and the 1st string up one fret.
