In the mood for a wobble
I love these Vinyl Wasteland compilations. I have a few. GREAT STUFF!
When I think of tremolo I always go here:
When I think of tremolo I always think of these two first:
The record version features it a lot more prominently but I can't find that version for some reason.
Then of course, this one:
Born On The Bayou: Creedence Clearwater Revival:
Money: Pink Floyd
Fogerty's got a no-name box with the legend "Swamp Box" scrawled on it. No idea what it is or who made it, but it's got "that" sound. CCR's "Midnight Special" shows the trem off at it's best.
I saw NoMeansNo perform I Need You in a time before tap tempo. The drummer would pound out whole notes and the guitarist adjusted the tremolo on his amp. That went on longer than you would expect. A couple of bars of silence and either the drums or the bass would start, I think the drums. The guitar comes in quite a while later.
Pre tap tempo to beat all.
I always found this solo (the whole but especially at 3:01 when the tremolo kicks in) unbearable:
I always like '20000 Leagues' by The Champs
James Burton used the tremolo on his brown face Fender amps in 1962-63 on a lot of Rick Nelson recordings. I was just a young kid then and it really stuck with me. The songs he used it on were mostly ballads and it was used beautifully.
Then I heard Rebel-Rouser, Born On The Bayou, Crimson And Clover and realized it worked well with fast rock songs as well. It comes in and out of style every so often but I personally love the effect. Yeah you can use it where it's obviously there but it also works as a subtile effect where most people can't even tell it's there.
I really like this one and the tremolo is real up front. I love tremolo, I almost want to supplement my Princeton’s normal trem with a pedal just so I can switch speeds quickly, but no pedal I’ve had sounds as good as the amp’s own trem
Not expecting much of s reply, just thought I'd chime in with this. One of my favourite records. Love the way the first couple of bars of Tremolo guitar grab you.....with a skirt that's wrapped around real tight!
