Hey guys!

I have a brief question...

Which good hard rock/heavy metal songs do you know that have same parts played with wah pedal?

Thx!

I don't think Steve can be described as hard rock or heavy metal...I need some stuff for my band to play, and I don't have any ideas...

Metallica - The Call Of Ktulu (S&M version)

Kirk's wah tone is probably one of the best I've ever heard when he is going mental with it :)

...and I bet you wont regret :wink:

Anyway, more that came to my mind:
TRUST - L'elite
TRUST - Bosser Huit Heures

It's another old band but this time from France, and Nono, the guitar player is an wha abuser :lol:

Most of Iron Maiden's Dave Murray solos like Wrathchild, Run to the hills, The Number of the Beast, etc. He is a wah-wah fan.

Adrian Smith is also playing some solos with wah-wah like Wrathchild, The Number of the beast, Aces High, etc. OH! I forgot one. Two Minutes to Midnight. H plays nice heavy riff with wah-wah. Solo starts at 2.54.

And don't forget this amazing, two parts wah-driven solo on motorhead 's "down on me" : http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=4vBRqLXnRyg

Starts at 1.50and 2.53 till the end (second part even more impressive, very intense)

The solo is by a famous guitarist.... :wink: that we all know here!

Enjoy.

:headbang :peace
