When my quitar player goes in to Hendrix mode (once a month or so) I
retaliate by winding every knob on the delay pedal up to 10 and
intentionally inducing feedback.  I play a riff, it starts bouncing around
the delay, then cup the mike (block the element entirely) and wave it in
front of my amp, carefully uncupping to induce the feedback.

It sounds, um, interesting, and usually brings the guitar back to earth.
I've got to the point where I can induce non-ear-bleeding, low harmonics by
careful manipulation of the 'cup' (just lift one finger a little bit).
