    I can't find the correct tabs for this anywhere, everything on the web is basically doubling the guitar line. I want to know the actual tremmed-out ebow line. Any help?

    you wont need an ebow, as there isnt one used . its three different distortions, chorus, some tremelo in parts and VOLUME.

  5. in the interview with "Bass Player" magazine (or "Bass Guitar" can't remember now...) JC says on the album there was some delay as well and it's three distortions. the overdrive/eq he has always on through his second amp, then the two through the first channel (and the chorus and the tremelo in certain spots). and he has to stand in the exact right spot. in the interview he mentions how he had problems finding that spot when they first started playing it live.

    Just saw them play live last week, and they played this, he had a circle of green lights to mark where he needed to stand. took him a few trys to get it, but when he did, it was freakin' sweet. oh and no e-bow. :ninja:

    This may be a foolish question, but what difference does it make where he stands?
     
  7. I'm not sure if you noticed this recent thread: Wal feedback.
    In any case, he's getting feedback from his amp by standing in just the right place, that's what's creating the sustain in place of an ebow.

    The pitch of the feedback. closer to the amp you stand the higher the pitch.

    I like this, find your spot during soundcheck and tell the lighting guy to fire a beam at it when the time comes. no unsightly tape on the floor with these guys!

    Yeah, I just saw JC at the Mile High Festival in Denver. Absolutely amazing set. Very similar to the last leg of the '07 tour, but amazing...especially with the Rockies as the backdrop.

    Tool is on fire on this tour. If you have a chance to hit any of their dates this round, do so...

    does he use a whammy as well? I can do it (or get very close using chorus, delay and fuzz) but when he goes up to 17,16,14 its sounds an octave higher

    I doubt it, probably just harmonic overtones from the mountains of distortion.
