I am looking for a guitar effect to use in this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmJdCpEPIWs
That is Pat Metheny's "Last Train Home". Song starts at about 0:30.
The guitar used was a cusom built guitar, using a "buzz bridge" to get
the distinctive sitar sound.
Electroharmonix makes a sitar pedal, the Ravish Sitar, and although it seems like
it could do a good job, it's a lot of cash for just one song. I don't really have a use
for that pedal aside from that one song. So I was wondering if there might be some
other effect, not necessarily sitar sounding, that might work well in that particular
song? Maybe some kind of dynamic filter? I have been practicing it with just a straight,
clean sound, and it seems to really need something more.
My electric guitar playing is limited to clean sounds like surf music, so am not familiar
with all that's out there.
