Hello. This is my first post to the forum, but I'd like to let you know how blown away I am by this site. Amazing stuff! Keep up the good great work!!

I had a suggestion for the instructors: would it be possible in the text introduction to each lesson to include a section with information about the equipment setup that was used? This might include the guitar type, amp and amp settings, as well as any effects pedals/settings (delay, reverb, distortion, etc.). Many lessons have unique tones and it might not be intuitively obvious what was used to get it. cool.gif

Many thanks!

Matt G.

Well,I'm gonna say this once again. smile.gif

Only thing I use for ALL lessons is Korg Pandora PX4D straight into audio card.
Settings wise,I tried to explain it HERE.

Hope this helps a bit,at least when it's about my tone. smile.gif

Thanks, Muris! You've got a really awesome tone. I'd seen your post about the Korg Pandora PX4D - sounds like a great unit.

Kris D. - maybe as an alternative to posting this information in each lesson, other instructors might be persuaded to add their standard gear setup to their profile (if it's not there already)? biggrin.gif

Great idea but some people already do that...Take Pavel for example, he has a section dedicated just for those questions, muris already said his settings, the rest is missing biggrin.gif...Personally, I'm more interested in Dave's Settings ^^
