Watch the Cocked Wah online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Guitar Effects Survival Guide

Yet another great use of the incredibly versatile wah pedal. Since the wah is basically an active tone knob we can dial it to accentuate certain frequencies. This can produce a very cool nasal guitar sound that Michael Schenker uses quite a bit. If you are not familiar with Mr. Schenker please check him out, one of my all time favorite players. We can also use this wah effect to emulate Brian May from Queen's guitar sound. A cool added bonus to this sound is that it can really cut through a mix of a band by boosting those mids.
