    Ok you're just passing time, noodling, warming up, whatever. You've got a nice clean tone going. Yeah, alright. You kick on the chorus pedal and a little subtle delay-- what song do your fingers immediately start playing? :lol:

    For me, it's two songs:

    The Police - Walking on the Moon


    Crowded House - Don't Dream It's Over



    I would also be interested in hearing about your flanger, vibrato, phaser, tremolo and rotary songs.

    Chorus = Message in a bottle.



    Tremelo = Kill Bill/nancy + Midnight Special + Joan Osborne.

    I don't use one. I have one but it's been collecting dust for over 10 years. I don't mind the sound really it's just too much bother to use pedals. I'm down to a tuner and compressor now.

    Martha & The Muffins - Echo Beach



    Prince - Purple Rain



    Pink Floyd - Run Like Hell



    I've got a lovely Ibanez CS-505 that I bought 30 years ago. Beautiful lush sound especially when in stereo. Sadly, my cat pissed on it the other day and now it's kaput. Bloody cat.

    Yep, somehow David Lindley makes chorus sound cool.

    If the chorus gets activated then some Police, Pretenders or Echo Beach may follow at some point.
