Flanger- Another common, sick ass effect on amplifers. It is similar to to ' Wah' Effect or Pedal. This effect changes the sounds played
and shifts it from Treble to Bass to Treble continusly - depending on how much or how long you play-. What the 'Wah' does is that it changes the Bass to Treble -or vice versa, depending where your at- on the press of a pedal, and the flanger takes a little time.
There is slow and fast Flanger, but the Flanger cannot make the ' Wah' sound. With Tremolo, these two effects combinded will rock.
Songs that have Flanger: Blink-182- Obvious - the verse-, Asthenia -when the guitars some in, verse-, Here's you letter -intro-, Feeling This - intro, even percussion have flanger-. Simple Plan- I'd do anything - approx at 2:01, they have both Flanger and Tremolo-
I won't be there - intro-. Black Eyed Peas- Where is the love?
To listen on the ' Wah' listen to the solo in 'Cold' by Crossfade -the electric guitar version-
Luv That Flanger in Simple Plan. You will just luv that effect to. Trust me.

Tremolo- A common, popular, but sick ass effect on amps.
It is very similar to the spring reverb. This tremolo effect acts as very staccato, non-stop, picking, only better because you won't have to do it. When Tremolo is with the other guitar effect flanger, it's the best. Some songs that have flanger: Three Days Grace- I hate everything about you. " Only when I stop to think about you" . Slayer-Death's Head -end of guitar solo-. Simple Plan- I'd Do Anything " I close my eyes...". Green Day-Bvd. of broken dreams.
Luv that Tremolo, Yes very similar to the Spring reverb- I made a mistake, flanger IS NOT SIMILAR TO THE SPRING REVERB-, or just regular staccato playing.
