    Me, being very non-knowlegable about effect for I have none, would like to know if anyone can tell me what effect Fat Mike is using on their song Medio-core off the War on Errorism CD, track 8. It's only during the second verse.

    It sounds like overdrive to me but I very well could be wrong. So, if someone could tell me what it is that would be great.

    Doesn't sound like it. I think the effect he is asking about comes in around 1 minute & 20 seconds into the song. It's some type of distortion, though I don't know much about effects so I can't tell you exactly what it is.

    Sounds to me like a distortion or nasty fuzz played through a hi-pass filter.

    Anyone spot the irony of wanting to know the
    effect on a NOFX song?

    Could be right, but if so, it's played through an octaver, first.
     
  9. unless he did some overdubs the guitar is playing that part
