    Default Question about Panama

    At 19 seconds into Panama, Eddie nails a harmonic whammy "squeal"( or maybe it's a pinch harmonic bend). It always reminded me of Roth's vocals. Eddie can mimic an elephant, a monkey, a horse, a tropical bird, just about any animal with his guitar. Anybody know if he intentionally tried to get his guitar to sound like Roth's vocals for this particular harmonic?

    Probably not....

    It just was the particular angle that his thumb and pick were at the time he hit the string.


    I guess...

    I believe it's just a pinched harmonic; that's how he's played it live when I saw them. But on the recording it sounds like a tire squeal. That's what I love about Ed. He makes the simplest things sound so fucking cool.

    It is just a pinch harmonic but now that I listen to it it does sound like Roth's voice. And I never thought of that all the times I've listened to Panama. Coool observation!!!
