Make Your Guitar Sound Like a Pink Floyd Synthesizer
Bill Ruppert sent us this video which is part of the Effectology video series he does for Electro-Harmonix.
The key to Bill's videos are that they are all about how to produce "impossible sounds" using just a regular guitar and effect pedals.
In this video Bill shows how to make a regular guitar sound like the synthesizers used in the Pink Floyd song "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" - all done using effect pedals!
If you don't have a Micro Synth similar sounds can be made with a distortion/OD pedal and a auto filter pedal.
