Cowboy - Right on friend lead guitar effect
« on: January 07, 2014, 08:47:24 AM »
Hi, I recently listened to the song Right on friend by the band Cowboy ( the album name is 5'll getcha ten) could anyone tell me what the effect T.Talton uses on his lead guitar.
Thanks in advance for any replies :)

Sounds like a Sitar to me. Without buying a pedal you could try the technique described here - http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Guitar-Sound-Like-a-Sitar  also, here's a sample - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5DJJb0HOR4  Another alternative which you probably would not like to try ( I know I wouldn't!!!) is this one here - http://www.musiciansfriend.com/amplifiers-effects/electro-harmonix-the-ravish-sitar-synthesizer-guitar-effects-pedal or this - http://www.guitarcenter.com/In-Store-Vintage-VINTAGE-CORAL-ELECTRIC-SITAR-10-22-12-108222062-i2800534.gc?source=4WWRWXGP&gclid=CNHQwJXe7LsCFSLxOgodPwMARA&kwid=productads-plaid^65691034362-sku^108222062@ADL1V@ADL4GC-adType^PLA-device^c-adid^27124231362

Since no response has been fielded, one can assume maybe "Murlin" has solved his dilemma. You're welcome. ::)

Yikes...That Ravish pedal is the most accurate, impressive actually...but EXPENSIVE!  :o
Danelectro makes the Swami pedal too, but it does NOT sound like a sitar at all.

I haven't checked, but surely there are plug-ins out there somewhere?
