All these posts about being expressive, made me think about the tremolo bar - a device which used with skill, can come up with a whole new dimension for your expression!

Of course I chose 2 of my favorites - Jeff Beck and Michael Lee Firkins. They are very different and they both use the tremolo bar like no other! Who's your favorite?

Good post C-Man. I also put Jeff Beck up there as being amazing with the bar. I would add Jason Becker to that list ! smile.gif

Slav, I intentionally left Steve out of this, just because I was darn curious to see if other players would've been introduced here tongue.gif

Dimebag, Jeff Beck and Guthrie Govan or my personal favorites. Especially Guthrie's solo on the new Periphery album!

Great clip man! Hadn't seen that one. I'm a big Guthrie fan these days, he's excellent. He doesn't use the bar often, but when he does it's very masterful and tasteful.

Adrian Belew is a good 'bar' user.
Subtle and musical, bar usage starts at 1:07: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Cr_cB8-NVU...be_gdata_player

Lets try this again. Sorry, newbie here.

Trembar action at 1:07. Looper stuff in front of that.
