Part 1 of the course (available now) introduces you to all the main types of guitar effects you're likely to use.
You will find out how each type of effect works because understanding how an effect is created makes it easier to know how to control that effect.
You will hear examples of each effect and how changing each effect's settings changes the sound. This will help you get a better idea of how to dial in the right settings for any effect.
You will learn how the pedal placement of each effect changes your tone. Instead of blindly following rules saying you should always put X pedal before Y pedal, you'll hear exactly what happens when you break those rules. Sometimes breaking the rules gives you better results!
By the end of Part 1 you will have a thorough understanding of the range of guitar effects available and how they all relate to each other.
Part 2 will dig deep into different types of tones (eg: clean, crunch, high gain, etc.) and walk you through how to set those tones up and control them. You can follow along with your own pedals or you can use software such as AmpliTube, Guitar Rig or BIAS FX. Tutorials will be included on those programs.
Part 3 will continue deeper into enhancing and controlling your tone with or without effects. The goal of Part 3 is to give you a toolkit you can use in any situation and dial in the perfect tone for your needs. You'll learn how effects can enhance your tone in different situations and how to come up with unique tones and effects.
Part 4 will analyze some famous guitar tones and break down what makes the tone unique. If you've ever heard a song and wondered how that guitarist got such a great tone, this part of the course will teach you how to analyze the tone and recreate it.
