“He’s a bad motha – SHUT YO MOUTH” . . .: Cry Baby: The Pedal That Rocks The World

The video below was brought to my attention in a recent post on OpenCulture.com. It a very cool documentary on the wah-wah pedal. Yes, the wah-wah pedal. The coolest guitar effect ever! Featuring a slew of guitarists (Eddie Van Halen, Slash, Kirt Hammett among others), the video does a good job of discussing technical aspects of the pedal, it’s history and it’s impact on contemporary music. It also point’s out what is to me the most appealing aspect of the effect: the way it allows the player to interact with it in a truly personal manner. Everyone who uses a wah pedal works with it in a way that is unique to that person.

Cry Baby: The Pedal That Rocks The World –

Is it strange that after watching the video, it made me nostalgic for 70’s porn? Don’t judge me.
