Re: Computer FX?

hey, I'm afraid I don't know much about computer software - but if you're willing to spend a few quid I'd recommend picking up a line6 toneport gx - they're about 40 pounds here in the uk. It lets you connect via your usb port, hence removing any latency issues, and comes with gearbox software - bas...

Re: confused re: overdrive and distortion

thanks for detailed answer stratman - you even managed to answer my next question about the effects order :-) I've found a nice looking pedal that covers both overdrive and distortion so I think I'll go with that, and let the cube's rectifier setting handle metal tones - I keep forgetting what a ver...

Re: A shape barre chord . . . pinky or 3 fingers?

use your ring finger and dont worry about the high e string, it'll sound just as good without it and makes the chord a whole lot easier to play :-)

Re: Overdrive vs. Distortion

tbh i dont know enough about effects to help you out in choosing od or distortion, but once you've decided go to the link below and consider either a modded ts7 (overdrive) or ds-1 (distortion)...i've heard amazing things about both and they're not that expensive http://www.bodenhamer-electronics.co...
