Post Infinite sustain ?
Okay, it's been asked a million times, but how do you achieve infinite sustain ?
Like in Technical Difficulties, the ascending notes before the solos, or in this Gary Moore video :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkUpfw4Hf3w

At the 03:00 mark.

I have a BOSS compressor sustainer CS 3, I put my guitar in, then the output of the sustainer in my distortion pedal and into the clean channel of my amp.

I tried cracking sustain to the max, but it doesn't sustain infinitely, what should I do ?
I tried also putting the distortion before the sustainer, didn't work either.

Any advice ?

Play it loud, and it will feedback. Find the feedback sweet spot and just stay there, holding that note, until you die.

Seriously, I sometimes get surprised, after playing for so much time in low volumes, how good a crancked up amp can sound!

Fernandes sustainer, or sustainiac by... (forgot the brand, but the sustainiac is better than the sustainer, I have one)

or just play loud, stand in a certain sweet spot to your amp and it'll feed back -> infinite sustain

Play loud.... simple. Gary used to work out where the perfect spot was to get that on stage then leave some tape there so he could hit the right feedback.

Easy solution?
