Tomorrow will be a real treat. I will be visiting an old-time high school friend with the violin & viola in tow along with some not so traditional accessories: a pick-up, effects box, wah wah, and amp. These will be meeting up with some high-tech devices to really mix things up a bit. My favorite classical composer amped up is Bach, however Vivaldi kicks things up just as easily. I'm interested to see what sort of things we can mix up in a day.
It's not often that I let my hair down.
Okay, I'll show my ignorance. What the @$#! is a wah wah?
hehehe, it is a pedal that makes a "wah wah" sound. Think of it as a foot control for vibrato or slides :)
I thought it was maybe a nickname for that Chinese stringed instrument. (Erhu? Not sure here...)
Thanks for the explanation!
