When was the last hit or popular band with a guitar playing minor pentatonic licks through a distortion pedal? Gotta be at least 40 years ago. Ah, those were the days.

I got one a few years ago after throwing my back out taking my steel out of the case for a rehearsal. Beautiful sounding instruments & lots of fun. Tip: learn the notes, there aren't that many.

Strymon Lex is a good sounding Leslie emulator, I think. One nice function is switching between fast and slow speeds with a gradual acceleration / deacceleration like the motor on a rotary device.

G# with a feel stop. I use my 7th string raise a lot, probably more than the 1st string. Grumbling rather than whining, if you will.
