Laura and I are heading off to Mammoth Lakes (California) today because we are performing at the annual Bluesapalooza Blues And Brews Festival up there on Sunday at 11:00am (and yes, there are still tickets if you want to come and join us!)

But I took a little time yesterday while putting the pedalboard together for the show to go on Facebook Live (from my phone, so my apologies for the quality) and talk about how and why I setup this pedalboard the way that I did.

It looks like a lot, but you’ll see most things get used very little or are simply there to compensate for issues I expect to have – being that it’s not my gear and I don’t know the soundman 🙂

Anyway, hope you enjoy it and if you do come to the show, PLEASE come and say hello after!

And if you are on Facebook, be on the lookout for video throughout the weekend on the Blues Guitar Unleashed Facebook page.

      There is a tiny pedal directly to the left of your Wah and I don’t think you mentioned that in your video.

      What is it?



      • Louis Ogden

        Walt, I think it is a tuner!

      Great to learn that knowledge. Thank you!

    • Steve A

      Thanks for the video and explanations. Especially about the OCD and how it helps you to shape the tone depending on the amp.

      I have a Xotic BB Plus (the BB preamp + OD and some compression) and man I love that thing when I play slide. The Xotics are great pedals.

      Thanks Griff. No compressor eh? Or is that coming from the OCD?

      Hi Griff, For some reason your video link did not open can you always provide the WMV to download which I always do as the Australian Internet is SO Slow. Any way it must have been good..
      Have a great time at the Bluesapalooza over the weekend, I have signed in to get the news for when I win a lotto..

      I will check out the BGU FB page over the weekend.

      Been watching all your emails. Super impressed. Ordered and just received your full course. Guitar unleashed. Found out what a drummer told me. He says love how you play clean notes but need to work on timing lol. Hoping through your course I find that timing. Thank you. Have fun in Mammoth

    • Rick P

      Thanks Griff:

      Nice to hear about the nuances of various effects pedals and their combinations.

      Cheers, Rick

        Really enjoy these vids Griff…..Do you have a video or could you recommend a software to run a guitar into and then into a small fender to get all the effects of the pedals you’re going over in this video?
        Sure would appreciate your advice! Also, every once in a while you rip through some tasty scale riffs which would sure be nice to have a mini course on; it would help me generate my own after I get the timing of some of yours.

        Thanks loads, Vince

    • mark

      Hope you have a great time. Interesting video, although I can’t imagine getting to the point of using pedals, I’m saving this just in case. Of all, the OCD may be the most likely for someone at my level.

    • Mark Wales uk

      Cheers Griff
