Lot's of insightful Strat tone advice from a young Sth African player who really understands the instrument.

Watch this if you play a Strat.

Great tips .

I was pretty aware of everything up to where he did the wha effect with the neck pickup tone down and bridge.

That one was a new one on me. Something to practice.

Hell, I've got a Crybaby, I don't need to practice..

Pretty sensible stuff. Didn't care for his wanky show-off playing, though.

And that guitar needs a BIOHAZARD sticker.

I went home and practiced that wah thing, it's not as easy as he makes it out to be, but darn if it doesn't work just great. You just need to regard the 5way as a rocker. Biggest challenge to me is that the real estate is very crowded there and you can turn knobs accidentally ruining the whole effect.

It would take a lot of practice to bring it out musically, but well that's what we do anyway. Very nice trick.
