How did Jeff Beck get so many weird sounds out of his guitar?

He doesn´t use a pick. Just his thumb and index (sometimes middle) fingers. He applies excessive use of the whammy by lifting and pushing down on it while tapping on the strings with his bare fingers and plucking the strings not in the body of the guitar, but on the neck and simultaneously finger muting after a half a second the string was plucked. Not to mention all this is done in odd timing, high improv skills and amazing visionary point of view of the technicality of guitar playing.
