ok so i am going to try out an electric guitar for a little while, because in music, variety is the spice of life right?

so i am messing around with it, and i find that my brother put a whammy bar on it. pretty cool, but i dont know how to use it. I cant bend it up or down. its rather confusing.

i know im a newb at this, but can someone help??

I don't know what your problem is exactly. But you just press or shake the bar toward the strings or away. It's easy!

ok i figured it out. I loosened the springs on the bottom of the guitar and it made the bridge more, how should i say, bendable? yeah thats right.

Pick a harmonic note while teh whammy is depressed. Then pull the whammy up and let that guitar scream! Works better with an overdrive pedal. For meh, anyways.
