How is that done ?

Question

Saw a music video where the guitarist is getting volume swells without playing with the volume knob. Also heard a song on the radio where the swells seem kinda fast to be done with your pinky finger.

Is that done with a volume pedal ?

Here's another effective tool for fast volume swells. The original is insanely priced but clones and affordable options exist. I had one in a Boss ME series multi-effects unit that did the same tricks just fine.

I think it could be a volume pedal as well.


However….

 

what I do is very very gently pick a note or a chord and then gently lift the guitar up towards my face and then scream at the strings as loud as I can and for as long as I can to MAKE THEM MAKE THE SOUND GET LOUDER.

 

I sometimes keep screaming at them after the note is fading because it makes the decay last longer.

 

Then I face the person who has come to see what going on and I scream in their face as well.

 

seems to work.

 

not sure it if would on fenders though

You can set up the green Line 6 DL4 delay pedals to do that.  I used mine on Fooled Around and Fell In Love.  I imagine there are other pedals other than a straight up volume pedal that could achieve the same results.
