    was just playing around in band pract the other day and kinda stumbled on a great way to play tom morello solo stuff quite easily, you know like the solo in Bulls On Parade, Sleep Now In The Fire, those kinda songs. anyway when he does the solos he slides his left hand up and down the strings while simulaneously flicking the toggle switch between pickups (1 pickup must be set to zero volume) with his right hand. i find however it comes out really low volume so the other day i picked up an allen key and ran that along the strings while toggling back and forth. it's sounds f#ckin great, loadsa volume (and you do want people to be hearing this sh#t!!) and loadsa different pitches comin out all over the place. try it out for yereselves. i tried a metal slide, zippo lighter, pint glass, pencil etc. they all have they're own ring to them (pardon the pun), so have fun!!!!
