I would like to have the same sound as the high tone's guitarist &#40;or other dub band&#41;, but I don't know the effects that I should use. <BR>I have a zoom505 and a Cry baby, if someone could help. <BR>thx

a cool techniq - put a sock n the bridge. <BR> <BR>The basic skank over Dub Bassline: <BR>Dull piano organ sound : \ \ \ \ \ \ \... <BR>Guitar : &#124; &#124; &#124; &#124; &#124; &#124; ... <BR> <BR>I think is possible to get more organic effects if you use your hands, not a plectrum. <BR>And always use wah and a phaser <BR>and not forgetting delay <BR>and intervals of thirds sound nice too <BR>also play it loud its just not fun otherwise

tubbyrule, try as I might I can't get my guitar to go 'wokka-cha, dang-cha'. It goes 'wikka-wakka, tang-cha', but that isn't quite the effect I'm after...Seriously though man, a well expressed suggestion! &#40;Wikka-wokka bang-cha, wik-wok banga-chaka, wikka-wokka wikka-cha, bang-bang chakka-wok - my latest dub...everyone like?&#41;

I personally get a pretty good guitar sound by strumming the melody strings of my Chapman Stick ;&#41;

This is a little off topic, but I'm trying to find out what guitars and amps Hux Brown and Lynn Taitt were playing in the 66-69 period. <BR> <BR>Also, anyone know what effect the lead guitar on Monkey Spanner is using? Is that an enveloper? T

Hi - I'm just visiting here. Is there a name for the single note melodic guitar parts used in reggae? The percussive, palm muted lines with lots of tripletts, usually on the lower strings...complimentary to the bass line?

In the documentary "Studio One Story", Coxsone says how he used an Echoplex (if i recall correctly) to get the "chuck-ah" sound (as opposed to a single "ching"). I assume a light reverb with a relatively long predelay or a delay with only a tiny bit of feedback would give a similar effect, although ive not tried this out personally yet.
