    Hey Anthony,

    My friend and I caught the show in Richmond this past thursday. First of all, you killed that slap solo! You were deep in the pocket on that one. Second, if you're "allowed" to answer this, what effects did Victor use on the very last song to get that Synthy/distorted/organ-esque sound?

    Thanks,
    Zack

    You'd hafta' tell me what the last song was. If it was a song we refer to either 'Miss You' or 'Smiling Face' he just used a guitar slide and a regular ole cheap distortion pedal.

    The guitar slide is the key. And I'm surprised that more bass prayers haven't done that. It's a cool sound.

    peace,
    anthony.
