This work has reached the exceptional level
great guitar rockers use the whammy bar

Jimi Hendrix & Eddie Van Halen

by Mark D. R.

perform the flutter,
do the dive, practice the shriek --
whammy musicians*

5-7-5 Poetry Contest contest entry

*Both guitar players likely used or experimented with the whammy bar aka tremolo arm to create their unique sounds.

Interesting factoids for both: Jimi, born in Seattle, has a Native American ancestry; Eddie's birthplace is Amsterdam, Netherlands. Hendrix and Van Halen are included with other famous musicians in Hollywood's Rock Walk.
