Exclamation Whaw Whaw On Acoustic

Hello fingeryoga :

Rodrigo & Gabriela use that FX and a whole lotta of others on their acoustic nylons , they rip it up
something serious .

Funny , think about their rise to success , they are both from one of the world's greatest metropolis
and didn't find big time success . They had to travel outside of their homeland and began to make a
name first in Dublin Ireland .

At home , the place in north America when the acoustic guitar is king they were met with less than a
positive acceptance from their homebased guitar community .

It's cool to have likes and dislikes on this subject I'm not knocking anyone's point of view , acoustic guitarists
like Gabriela & Rodrigo , Tonne Estas and the like of modern 21st. century acoustic nylon guitar musicians are
laughing all the way to the bank at their former detractors with their world wide acceptance of FX on
acoustic nylon guitars and the $'s they're raking in .

I'm experimenting with whaw whaw and other FX on my 000 acoustic nylon , resonator steel string 000 ,
D46SCE Washburn dread , Kamaka soprano ukulele with my T.C. Helicon VL3X , it's fun .

EZ :

It started for me with Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in 54 on a Blues Harp and progressed ,
then life .....some death ....Evolving as I went like a small rock in a stream rounding
out as I went with the flow as I go through the white waters and waterfalls of life .
Life has always been interesting to me

Default Acoustic Effects

I run some compression, use some modulation and shimmer effects from an RV-6, an MXR micro amp for a boost to signal, but the cream is a Pigtronics Rototron pedal I recently purchased. After discovering Hotel California was played on a 12 string and ran through a Leslie speaker I just had to try one. I love it! Has both fast and slow speeds, depth, ramp between them. I lay down melody loops in a slow speed and pick lead over them in a fast speed. Very cool pedal!
