Hi 101s
Heres a really cool guitar trick, a sort of sound effect
really. Satch has got his "lizard down the throat", this is "The
Three Bs.

First, it works best with a heavily saturated distorted sound.

On the G str. 4th fret B Harmonic
On the B str. 5th fret B Harmonic
On top E str. 7th fret B Harmonic

Play all 3 simutaneously, either pick with fingers or rake your
plectrum accross the strings- then depress whammy bar slowly.

The resulting sound is pretty crazy, one of the harmonics seems to rise in pitch in a sort of aural illusion and though
devoid of any musicality- it sounds f**kin cool

rising harmonics probably as in the harmonics cause weird overtones because the three notes are all at pitches that are just slightly dfferent.. like 1/10 of a semitone?
lol hehe neat trick!
