Gain Effects: Add Some Distortion

Get full access

Throughout this course we've explored the basics of gain, whether it was coming from the gain/master volume settings on your amp or from overdrive or distortion pedals like the basic BOSS pedals. But gain in a rock context is a huge topic with endless variation to it, so in this tutorial I'll take you a little bit further into this world.

We'll do this by exploring a couple of classic pedals like the RAT and the Tube Screamer, but I'll also show you some other types of distortion, like the Fuzz and a high gain Metal sound. First I'll show you how the pedals work, and then I'll show you a simple example to demo the sound. Let's get to it!
