    Hey guys,

    I have been listening to soundgarden alot lately, one of the songs that I like alot is "My Wave" of the Superunknown album.

    The is a bass wah used in it and I was wondering if it is an auto wah or a manual wah.

    I dont really know how to differentiate the two. So thats why I am asking ya'll.

    Thanks in advance,

    -Rory

    My guess, judged on both sound and the gear Ben Shepherd used at the time, was that it was a manual wah. It very well could've been (and probably was) the Dunlop 105Q wah. I saw an add or something with him Chris and Kim and they all had one.

    ^^Thanks,

    I have a 105Q so I think I may learn this song.
     
  4. +1 on the Dunlop 105Q, I remember them having those as well.

    +1000 on My Wave, great song, one of my Soundgarden favs!

    Have fun with it. If I recall right the tunning for that song, at least on the guitar, is pretty wild. I don't know if it applies to bass or not.

    "PISS ON MY GATE". Soundgarden were awesome! I saw them live a few weeks before they split. Great band! Good luck with My Wave.
