JEFF BECK/JOHN MCLAUGLIN: THE SPECTRUM (MAY 2, 1975)

Link to Jeff Beck story in Wolfgangsvault regarding the talk-box technique excerpted below:

“Beck playing his guitar through a talk-box, a gadget that he helped introduce to a legion of guitar players. (The way this effect works is the electric guitar signal is diverted from the amplifier speaker to a special hose-like conduit. The hose directs the sound into the guitarist’s mouth. Guitarists move their mouth as if they are speaking to change the tone and nuance of the sound, which is then picked up by the microphone.”
