    Default Ed's first use of wah on record?

    I don't know why this just hit me out of nowhere, but I believe Ed's first use of a wah pedal, on a recording, was the solo in Cabo Wabo. Can anyone confirm? Thanks.

    I could swear that he hits a wah sound near the end of the solo in Ice Cream Man, about four bars before the final chorus. It's just a quick, bending note, but I seriously think he wah'ed it.

    Probably the MXR Phase 90 pedal he used to use on damn near every solo back then. You're prolly just hearing the high end of the phase sweep on that one...LOL!

    ...and, yes, Cabo was the first for the wah on record...

    I HATE Wah Wah pedals with a passion!!

    I remember the first time I heared Ed use one and I was really surprised he did. I hate 'em!

    HATE 'EM!!

    And yeah, everytime Ed gets a new toy, you get to hear it over and over and over and over again.

    I would love nothing more than for Van Halen (either with Dave or Sam-don't give a shit) and Ed use his original setup for the entire album.

    The old Marshall stack, MXR phase, Echoplex, MXR flanger.

    No Peavey, Music Man either. I want it as close to CVH as possible.

    Maybe Dave could wear the ass-less chaps once again for your viewing pleasure.

    Do you still want to be in high school too?

    Change is inevitable--especially with artists. You don't have to listen to anything new if you don't like it.

    HOLY GOD, PLEASE NO.
    Sometimes an end of an era is a good thing!!
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    Not to get off topic, but aren't all chaps assless by definition? My fiance is a big CVH fan - I appreciate both eras - and whenever we get into the Dave/Sam debate, I just bring up the chaps. Works like a charm...
