Loving the processed delay, ghost delay and dotted-eighth delay examples. The one-word delay not so much in your example, sounds a bit rushed and choppy but, of course, it can be effective when done properly.
In any case, thanks for the tips, Mike! I've heard lots of people using stereo echos and/or delays with slight variations in the left and right channels, particularly for big choruses, so I'd love to see that properly done some day. It sounds a bit too wet and artificial when I've tried to employ this technique
