Super Crazy Guitar Pedal Improv! What was I thinking?

It’s been a stressful week! I felt like making some crazy sounds so I pulled out some toys and got to it. I had a great time and I think this came out pretty rock’n. Thank you for watching!

Pedal Trio: Ring Thing, 90’s Russian Big Muff, Moog Flange

I was organizing my gear and came across my 90’s Russian built Big Muff Pi. I stopped using this pedal about 4 years ago and I thought it was time to revisit it. I paired it up with my new Moog MF flange and the EHX Ring Thing to see what it would inspire. I like what happened!

Each track was recorded in one take, for better or worse.

Signal Chain: Guitar, Ring Thing, Big Muff, MF Flange, Amp.

• For the “Bass” I used the octave down setting on the Ring Thing going into a driven Big Muff.
• The Rhythm guitar I used the MF Flange with a slow sweep, a lot of depth and the vocal switch on.
• For the solo I turned everything on and set the Ring Thing to be an octave up.

Bouncy Blues Backing Track in E

I wanted to make a really light, bouncy and almost silly blues backing track to show that blues isn’t only about feeling blue, but sometimes is about taking your blues away. This one cheers me up every time. Also, in the middle I pull way back in volume so you can do the same, we get to build and then come out hard at the end. I love the dynamic playing from artists like Buddy Guy who will bring the band back to a whisper and then bring everything to a roaring head. I think dynamics in playing is something a lot of people forget about, so this is a good chance to experiment with that.

Key of E. Chords are E, A, B.
