    what is everyones favorite song to play with effects. I like to play the ballad of bucket head (by primus, if youve seen videoplasty you know what im talking about) with wah.
     
  2. Great topic!

    Spank my ***** by Prodigy, now that's a great song to play if you want to use synths. It's also a great song to exercise your fretwork.
     
  3. Oh yeah, there's also Spybreak (oneshot) by Propellerheads that has the best repetitive bass synth line to play.
     
  4. Muse - hypermusic
    AllodoX - Adopt, adapt, improve.

    Pennsylvania
    King Crimson - Sleepless. I don't care how it's supposed to be done. A single slap-back echo really makes it sond wild.
     
  6. Primus - Voyage of the Liquid Sky (filter heaven)
    Tool - 46&2(thick chorus and heavy dist.) and nearly every song off of lareralus.
    Cream - Sunshine of Your Love (i play the guitar parts with overdrive, fuzz, wah, and anything else i can find.)
    Oysterhead - Anything (losts of filter use)
    Parliment - Flashlight
    Rush - Tom Sayer (when my band covered this i would mimic all the synth parts of the song with filters, fuzz, phasors, and the old trick of finding that perfect sweet spot on a wah)

    tip: a wah used before distortion and held in a single point can make a perfect synth sound ESPECIALLY when used with chorus.
