I gigged a lot with a band that played mostly original music in college. We weren't good, but we had three fraternities represented, and always packed the house anyways (i.e. sold a lot of beers). Since that was all original music, I pretty much plugged straight into the amp and played, with the exception of sometimes using a wah pedal for certain songs. Two decades later I'm playing with a drummer and we're considering putting a band together. We won't have a lot of original music at first, and would be covering country/southern rock at least at first... So, question... Covering a variety of songs means switching guitars and tones frequently. Just the drummer and I messing around has me spending a minute or so in between songs switching guitars (we will cover some Black Crowes, which means open tunings, ergo a second tele or switching from strat to tele). How do you manage that? If I need more fuzz or crunch from one song to the next, or a little different setting for the compressor - has anyone ever used two of the same pedal with different settings to make the switches faster? I'm pretty new to chaining effects, and in fact just learning about the benefits of an effects loop and the ordering of pedals as well. My drummer buddy can play almost anything, and I had to explain to him why I was switching guitars and monkeying with the amp and pedals when we went from covering Neon Moon to Jealous Again, lol.
