I want to use my Ibanez electric, which has a floating tremolo bridge, for most of my performances. I play stuff from "Sultans of Swing", with lots of bends, to hard rock where I like to use my tremolo for fun and crazy dives!

However, when I play "Sultans of Swing", there are those licks where you play the 3rd string, bend it up, and then play the 2nd string a fret higher. Very common lick.

But because of the floating tremolo, the "bend up" of the 3rd string causes the floating bridge to dive a bit, and the pitch of the 2nd string goes a little flat.

If you understand what I'm referring to, do you have any suggestions on how I can get around this? I do have another guitar with a fixed bridge, so I use that when I need to play the "Sultans of Swing" style solos, but that guitar just doesn't have the sound I want.

Thanks!

Hi everyone. Just joined yesterday and love this site so far!!!

I'm 41 years old, live in Highlands Ranch, Colorado (just south of Denver). I've been playing since I was 13 years old, but have never taken lessons. Really wish I did, but now I'm here and hope to learn a TON!

I recorded a CD back in 1998. Never did much with it, but if you want to check it out, visit my website (http://www.ronlucas.com).

My gear:
Fender Stratocaster (American made in 1996 - or around that year).
Ibanez S520WNF
Boss GT-3 effects processor
Digitech Jamman (haven't found a need to this cool toy yet!)
Marshall MG250DFX amp
Cakewalk Sonar for recording

Hope too chat with you all sometime.

Ron
