Using your whammy bar, pick notes and vibrate them gently, but very quickly. You've
be light on the whammy bar otherwise it'll just sound out of tune.

For those of you who are interested in it, here is the trumpet part from the above two,
obviously it's hard to recreate the sound of a trumpet's valves on guitar, so it doesn't sound
exactly right. I'm pretty sure there's a harmony in there somewhere, but these are the 
notes played.
