I'm so glad there are no surviving pics of me in my turtleneck phase ... back in 1977 ...
Joe's been thinking deeply about what he said.
Here he is, thinking, deeply, about it, in depth.
Because he has nothing better to do with his life than worry about upsetting a bunch of super talented guitar players on teh interwebz by merely saying what he, and a good few other folk, actually think...
The only effect I use in a subtle fashion is a wah turned on but almost fully deflexed to add a certain character to the sound........and it's always on.
Same thing with chorus.......just barely there.
That's just part of my basic tone.
But......when I want effects, I use them on insane mode and am looking for a sound far away from what are "normal"guitar sounds.
It's quite rare to hear somebody playing without effects these days.
but i love it
What's a good pedal I can use to sound like ?
It should have a multi position selector knob, where all positions are labeled "pentatonic."
This is supposed to be no effects.
Well, there's reverb, obviously.
Yes...........other than the reverb which brings a question.
Is playing through a super reverb considered using effects?
Amplification IS an effect. Real players plug into a HiFi speaker system. Sorry Joe
Thanks, I enjoyed that...alot
I didn't hear other effects besides reverb. Are you thinking it's a distortion pedal and not just a hot pickup / hot amp? Maybe it is, but amps can definitely do that on their own. ...or are you saying amp distortion IS an effect? I suppose it is, in a way.
I'm thinking of it like this - if you have an amp with tremolo, vibrato, chorus, or reverb - you'd say the amp has "built in effects." ...but most wouldn't call an amp that has high gain but none of those other effects an amp with "built in effects" just because it can break up and distort when you hit the tubes hard.
i just popped my collar and I liked it.
Please tell me this is not true... that you DIDN'T pop your collar...
Try an acoustic if'n you want clean tones.
What I want is immaterial to this thread
I found out the hard way it IS possible to overdrive an acoustic. Vigorously strumming a guitarlele with a heavy pick doesn't produce the prettiest of noises....
Well not right out in front of anybody...
