On my uni, I have nowhere to put that lever. However, because I play the Day way round, pedals A & 5 are next to each other and with those two and the vertical I get the equivalent of the A6 chor ...

I don't play a universal but if I did I would lower my E's on the right knee. That allows you to play the 6th tuning with the E's lowered and you can play your 6th pedals without having to hold the kn ...

I never found out if the wound string would go up to Bb, as I ditched it on grounds of taste before I got the B6 side of the tuning going. I suspect not easily, and trying to time the P7 raise with t ...

I don't think it's a question of dependency, but what sounds best (which includes the business of whether the guitar can lower it far enough).

Not sure what the string gauge was but it sounded great in both positions.
My first guitar came with a top G and when I discovered that D was more common I tuned it down as a temporary measure. It mu ...

If a person needs a visual reference to tell them what their ears cannot, I'm not sure they should be anywhere near a musical instrument.

The volume pedal is part of the instrument and is always first in the chain.
That is absolutely what I meant.

I'd ditch the outboard effects, just use a little bit of the amp reverb... Learn to play the guitar, and keep getting better. Pick assertively, as if you're daring it to sound bad. Spend some time pra ...

But then the clarinet is a multi-style instrument like the trombone. It sounds ...
