To Make a Great Guitar Tone


    Playing guitar in general, can be condensed into two categories. In this article we will be talking about tone, and the importance of refining.

I see too many guitarists, who have a zillion guitar effect pedals, and I try not to open his mouth, but then I started playing, and it is absolutely unbearable. Guys, seriously, are not offset with toys. Take the time to improve your game, since all the goodies

In the world will not make you a better guitar player.

Also, using too many pedals and effects can be bombarding the listener, and also kills the strength of their overall sound. If you spend most of your time playing through a clean environment on your guitar, do not think for a moment that you are not affected by this.

I've seen a lot of clean guitar players that are bad for this too.

If you can find the discipline that limited a little, then you will see how impressive a tone you can get. For example, the decision to build a pedal is a great way to address the problem of guitar pedal self indulgence. Sure, you could by a brand new pedal board, but they are expensive, and many do not fit your needs.

Building your own guitar pedal board is fun,  and helps you get a good idea of how you use your tone. Remember, when you are building a pedal, is also building its tone, because you have to determine what goes where, and what happens before it.

Some of your time to become a smart consumer. Do not settle for any old pedal off the shelf, and do not ever think that because a pedal is very expensive, which is the best and is the best for you.

Try all kinds of pedals, and you will find the most bizarre effects pedals complement each other. In the example, the use of a clean environment, with a very slight amount of delay (short delay) can give you a nice, rich "creamy" sound for the chords.

If you experience, you will find all kinds of tricks like this,you determine the layout of your board. Do not forget to put this on paper first, and certainly do not forget to measure the dimensions of the pedals, and take into account the space required between each of their cables.

Now I'm not saying that building a pedal board is the only way to do this, but it does help to push in the right direction, because if you do something like this and it seems like a perfect sound, is likely to panic if anyone so much as breathing in the direction of a foot control effect.
