The Knowledge: About Overdrive

The Knowledge is the training course that every cab driver in London town needs to complete before getting their license. It involves learning the 25,000 streets of that major capital.

This will be where I share knowledge I have, or find on the Web, that every modern guitarist needs to navigate the world of guitar playing and tone.

For the first one, I want to introduce The Pedal Show, a great series from Mick Taylor, former writer and editor of British guitar mags, and Daniel Steinhardt from GigRig, who makes great switching systems and consults to the stars about all things tone.

In this episode they discuss overdrive, fuzz, and reveal how discussions of “the best” anything are exercises in futility due to the variables in gear combinations.
