    As you may or may not know, I recently acquired a 105Q bass wah. I want to make a playlist all of wah songs, and I need your guys' suggestions. So far its:

    Rage Against the Machine - Calm Like a Bomb
    Rage Against the Machine - War Within a Breath
    Audioslave - Cochise
    Audioslave - Exploder
    Tool - The Patient
    Black Sabbath - N.I.B.

    I'm going to look through my whole library for others, but what are suggestions from you guys?
     
  2. if u have some distortion:
    Metallica- Anesthesia
    Metallica- Seek and Destroy

    if not:

    Tool- Lateralus
    Tool- Hush
    Metallica- King Nothing (flanger, but IMO sounds better with carefully used wah. Great song for honing this skill too!)

    Don't forget 'Uplift' by Pantera! There's some cool mini-solos with some wah action. Also, I'm pretty sure that in 'Lateralus' it's not wah, I think it's a whammy pedal.

    I think it's mostly him rocking the octave with the whammy, but until I get my whammy, I just use my wah and slide. :D

    Not Auto-wah, though, it's a regular wah-wah pedal - but cool playing by Geezer...
