Nice - I always thought these spasmodic movements were just his way of 'concentrated playing' (like when a guitarist is making faces on 'soulful' passages). Probably because TG even wiggles his head and has this funny/inspired look on his face...you really nailed it. Thank you for the explanation!

Thank you for this video Mr Lerch. Ive always insisted to friends that Teds wiggle was not some sort of spazz or twitch. To me, it's reminiscent of classical guitar vibrato and expression, but on a powerhouse instrument where you can really dig in. There is no pedal or effect that can replicate that sound or manipulation of. Thumbs Up!!
