Are you alternate picking and pulling on the whammy against towards the guitar body, in order to gradually tension the strings ? smile.gif

Yes, with the method you've described, a very similar sound can be achieved.
But here I've used a different method smile.gif I do something very specific with the pick, and the left hand does something, too. I didn't use the whammy bar in this one though.

Let's see whether we have some more guesses, before resolving this UFO-riddle smile.gif

I've found another cool guitar trick I've invented a long ago: it's a UFO take off sound!


http://soundcloud.com/jonas-tamas-guitar/crazy-guitar-tricks-14-ufo


Can you guess how I've made it?




This is the way to do this trick. Dampen all the strings with your left hand, around frets 5-8. Then hold the pick upside down (so the flat end touches the strings). Start to mover ('rasp') the D-G strings with an up-down motion around fret 12, and then gradually go towards the pickups, while keeping on rasping.

Decided to let Steve do his job, instead f me recording it (don't have a wah pedal at home unfortunately) so here we go - The laughing guitar!

Check out sec 0:32



You need a floating tremolo bridge and a wah pedal for this. Start on a higher fret with the bar pressed, then just release the bar and at the same time, toe down the wah pedal. Do this in succession, fretting lower each time biggrin.gif

I've come up with this sound today, I call it the "Falling Down" trick.

Sounds like you're raking the pick against the strings (maybe the D and G strings?) starting from the bridge towards the neck? T'would be too easy, so I don't bet on it though biggrin.gif

Yes, you are right. It was an easier one than the donkey or forest bird sound earlier smile.gif

I've used the long side of the pick, and started the quick up-down movement above fret 22, while gradually sliding towards the lower frets.

This is my "Crazy slide" trick. It is obviously a slide, but as you can hear, the intervals are a lot bigger than the minor 2nd intervals would be that given by the frets.

How can we produce this slide? (No other objects were used smile.gif )

You pulled the string outside the fretboard and slid from there? smile.gif

That was quick, you get all the tiny details and tricks, Cosmin! smile.gif


I take it as a challenge and create a new one soon! biggrin.gif

OK, this is the "Crazy Rain Forest Midnight Sound" guitar trick. This trick is really hard to guess - there is something special happening at the middle of the note...

Actually, this sound can only be produced with a Floyd Rose guitar with a too low string height. One of my students has brought his guitar this week before taking it to set up properly. And I've used the opportunity to record this sound:) Just pick a note then pull the tremolo bar upwards, and the string "sits down" to a higher fret, which chokes the sound. It is a really crazy trick, because you'd need a bad setup guitar to pull it off! biggrin.gif
