Hello everyone – intro to my guitar, on video for 2014
 ooh, I’m up for cover or lesson requests if anyone wants me to do anything in particular….

Great for us all to meet you both, and hear the tone and the story behind that guitar you’d “been after for a while,” David!
The first riff you play around with is exactly the type of electric playing I’d like to expand into this semester – the fluid blend of rhythm chords and lead licks has that essential Hendrix influence that I’d like to learn more about, if I could make a request!
A cool thing too is the amazing tone David is getting out of a 1 watt guitar amplifier, which is extremely small by guitar amp standards. Depending on the sound you’re after, it’s often better to play a small amp loud than a big, high-powered amp at a lower level. You can always mic the little amp and make it loud in the PA and monitor system. Also students new to electric guitars might want to notice that in his video David switches between pickups, to get different tones. That’s something worth experimenting with as pickup selection is part of the guitarist’s palette of tone choices. Later he also switches on a foot pedal to get a more distorted sounds. Guitar pedals plug in between the guitar and the amplifier and give the player other types of guitar sound effects. When we find some time this semester I’m sure at least one of us will demonstrate some pedals and let you listen to the different sounds they can make. Of course if any other students have pedals, please show them off to us!
