    The end of the song was cut off for censorship. Hendix ends the song by making his guitar talk with the wha pedal.
    But it's what the guitar says at the end of the song that explains why it's censored.

    Sweet child deffo great wah solo - but... its SUCH a girls track. Little wannabe teenage rock airheads dancing around their handbags arguing who is the cutest between Axl, Bontempi and Joey Tempest circa 1987

    Another great Wah solo

    RIP Chris, voice that could shatter glass and an incredibly talented special human being :-(



    When the film Casino Royale came out I thought "life isn't fair, why don't I look like that?"

    And my girlfriend said to me "life isn't fair, why don't you look like that?"

    The tragedy is that they used a REAL DBS for that stunt. NOOO! I was thinking maybe an old Jag chassis with a plastic replica body. The stunt driver was told - little platform on the right hand side at 50m and you have to hit it at exactly 60 mph at exactly the right angle to fly over the girl and get 3 rolls, you have one take. ONE TAKE WITH A 170 GRAND ASTON!! bet his arse was like a rabbit's nose. Wish I had been the camera guy, "sorry lads, forgot to switch it on" :) :naughty::naughty::naughty:

    Pretty much all of Robbos solos. Don't believe a word is a great example of way as an expression pedal,. opium trail from bad rep is great too

    Not any particular solo, but anything with Brian Robertson throughout the lizzy years or anything with Michael Schenker...I like how they accentuate what they do...I pretty much hate when people just stomp out the beat on their wha...

    The 'talking' bit in rainy day dream away from electric landlady. I think that's the high point. It's kind've easy to sound good - ish with a wah but difficult to get something truly original.
