This question got me all jazzed up about Collective Soul again, so I was spinning through my iTunes library and I hit "Heavy" off Dosage. I have always wondered how to play the beginning riff of that song. I have tried many times to figure it out, but to no avail. I think he's using a kill switch, pinky volume knob voodoo, or perhaps some studio trickery. It's not a tremolo--I have a Diamond, which will do almost any trem sound possible, and I still can't emulate it properly.
Has anyone figured that one out or is there a reputable article out there with some tips? Internet tablature does not count as a reputable source unless you can convince me otherwise.
