My point here was if you played a note on say the 2nd string of the guitar
& then whammy-ed away at it, just the fact that the strings are ALL being
bent would problalbly cause problems. I'm aware of the way a MIDI p/u is
designed to track each string, but a whammy would bend strings that aren't
being played/used, which would probably cause some problems. Just thinking
out loud here.
