White Stripes – Seven nation army (Leaping Ahead #246)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #246: 160902

[A guitar song (8)

Released as the lead single from their fourth studio album ‘Elephant’ in March 2003, “Seven Nation Army” is known for its underlying riff, which plays throughout most of the song. Although it sounds like a bass guitar (an instrument the group had never previously used), the sound is actually created by running Jack White’s semi-acoustic, 1950s-style Kay Hollowbody guitar through a DigiTech Whammy pedal set down an octave.
