    Animal noises

    Does anyone know any other animal noises on the guitar, other than the dolphin noise on the GNR Estranged solo caused by the volume swells or the seagull slides on Don Henley's Boys of Summer?

    Listen to Adrian Belew. From King Crimson....After that he had an album called lone rhino or something. His thing is making animal noises.

    Jimi Hendrix used to do this thing where he would get feedback on a really high note and them hit the whammi bar with several quick motions and I swear, it sounded just like a horse.

    Didn't Vai do something like that on "Bad horsie"? But i still think the seagull's the best with the slides (is hunting for a bottleneck).

    Good question: the Beatles have a very audible cricket noise on Abbey Road. I have always wondered if that was intentially inserted or if one of the tracks was recorded in the country. Anyone know?

    Actually quite a few records contain cricket noise (maybe I mean katydids). Aztec Two-Step's first album had it. I figure they recorded it in upstate New York or some rural place.

    With his guitar, Duane Allman recorded a decent impersonation of a bird chirping, on "Mountain Jam" on Eat a Peach. I think it was right before or after their instrumental interpretation of "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," strangely played in 3/4 time. Being from the South in the U.S. that struck me as very a revolutionary treatment of the tune.

    "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" is an American hymn or folk song very popular in the southern states. Everyone knows it. I it usually played slowly as a dirge because it is about a funeral procession. Some bands speed it up, though. It's in 4/4 time. I have never heard anyone but the Allman Brothers do it as a 3/4 time tune. When I say they did a "revolutionary treatment" of the song on their Eat a Peach album, I mean that it was an original treatment of an old song. Perhaps using the word "revolutionary" is overstating the case.

    Cheers, I thought it was to do with the civil war or something and I was really confused.

    On topic, I remember reading somewhere that Eddie Van Halen could do an elephant noise (or maybe its my imagination..)

    Well, Pantera made a song called Throes Of Rejection, at the very begining you hear like a Panther(any large cat) like i dunno...growl? Its sounds pretty cool, i think he used a combination of the Whammy pedal and Floyd rose. But it has an awsome effect.
