Songs in the key of Wah-Wah

I found a music category that Purron hasn't hit yet

The Wah-Wah pedal. It could be put in series with any musical device if an acoustic pickup was attached, although it was most known for guitar applications.

Here is a shameless example of Wah-Wah, and also has Phase-Shifting effects in the song.

Dig out those Wah-Wah songs, any amount of Wah will do!

I'm presently at w*rk but I remember Peter Frampton using a bit of W-W and what about George Harrison's song "Wah-Wah" on The Concert for Bangladesh album.

Man that's funny. I had pulled out my old vinyl StatusQuo album to listen to it after Target used it in a commercial last year.

How did I miss Jimi

I guess my mind isn't functioning properly because I am at w*rk.

No live version, but from Stills' first album, with the added attraction of a solo by Clapton...

Something not well known, but worthy of note. Very long (hey, it was the 70s), so skip to around ten minute in for the wahwah...

Alice in Chains! Volume up please. Well, that's pretty much SOP with any song heavy in the wah department.

I just spent the whole evening searching for a wah-wah song that might approach the opening riff on Voodoo Child. No luck at all.

Here's a classic... with DOUBLE wah-wah!

First is the fast overriding wacka-whacka wah-wah (uh, wacka-whacka wah-wah? sounds like I'm one year old, doesn't it?).

Second is a more restrained slower wah-wah that slips between other notes.

A wah pedal is basically a sweepable band pass filter, and with some experimenting and experience, can be much more versatile than the ubiquitous "wah" sound...

Okay, kiddies, not technically wah, wah, but, IIRC, this was the first commercial release of a "record" (you all remember those, don't you) with the phase shifting phenomenon. Yes, I know I'm dating myself. Also, IIRC, the phenomenon was discovered accidentally, but I can't confirm that. So, from 1959, here is Toni Fisher with "The Big Hurt".
