Wah-wah

While driving to work, I was playing this CD of bootleg Stones stuff. One of the songs was a ferocious live version of the song “Out of Control”. The intro had this really fine muted trumpet that made me realize that one of the coolest sounds ever is a muted trumpet. I think at some point in the 60s it probably was a cliche but I think it has regained its cache. And hence, a new list, classic musical sounds that are inherently cool:

Muted trumpet
Hammond B3 Organ
Tenor sax
Mellotron
Standup bass

and of course,

A Les Paul or a Strat through a Marshall stack
