Another trick that seems to work is to have a 2nd singer do the 'bridge' part:
A Day in the Life,
53rd and 3rd (Ramones)
Comfortably Numb (not sure this is really a 'bridge'?)

If you have Windows Media Player, go into 'Now Playing', Enhancements, and SRS WOW Effects, and crank the WOW Effect slider all the way to the right, this will be emphasing the L - R like the center speaker / Eno / Hafler circuit thing. Things panned dead center (usually lead vocal, kick drum, bass)...

I don't have a harmonizer, I'm not sure that's the sound on snare for the first few songs on that album. It's like the pitch goes down?

Also, what's up with the cymbal on the left channel in 'Sound and Vision'? That crazy Eno...

The bass sounds normal to me on that one(?) What catches my ear is that snare drum. Distorted, maybe some envelope filter? I almost returned Low when I first bought it, I thought I had a bad copy.

I did this on a cheap acoustic (for our RPM Challenge project) but would like to try on an electric also. I think ...

We got ours in on the 29th, staying up til 1 a.m. the night before (using those procrastination skills from college). Our biggest obstacle was probably the lack of a percussionist, so the rhythm tracks are mostly from Band in a Box, the others are loops. I'll post the jukebox link when it gets uplo...

I voted for PG, but I think my favorite Zep riff is the beginning of 'Out on the Tiles'.
