    I use the wah to "bring out" some special notes or phrases. When I start to play the note/phrase the wah is in bass position, and when the note/phrase is finished the wah is in treble position. Or the opposite way, I start with treble, and end with bass. This means that I let the wah "rest" when there's nothing special to play.
