        VERY short delay on the really fast stuff ... like "Wounded Bumblebee" . He played every OTHER note, and the delay did the rest .... harder than playing it straight through, in my opinion. I saw Nuno on a very RARE date on LI after "Schitzophonic" came out ... and that's what he did to play that piece. It was amazing!! Also, he was playing Hughes & Kettner with a Washburn Princess guitar ... and some work with the N1; still had the classic 'Nuno' sound, tho!

        He was using a Lexicon processor, tho, and an Eventide processor, as well.
