Hi Marcus,

I am really enjoying all of your lessons, I can play most of them, although not up to your speed smile.gif
One thing I am struggling with though is the whammy bar, I have a floating bridge on my strat, but I just seem to be inept with using the whammy, I am unable to get the same sounds as you. One specific instance is in your evening blues solo, you do a nice riff I believe a repeated pull off from 9 to 7 and you seem to dive the bar when you strike the 9th fret, I just am completely unable to get the sound, when I do it the sound is just terrible. I also have this same problem on your 3 level solo, vibrato solo, some of Muris' lessons, and other lessons on the site. Do you have any advice or could you possibly make a lesson on how to actually use the whammy bar. Basically the sound I get is akin to dropping the guitar on the ground haha.

Thanks smile.gif
