Duke,

Signed up last weekend. Great lesssons. Very deep. I have an ES 175 from 1951 ( one pick up) and a Princeton amp from the 50's. There is no reverb and I don't want to crank the amp up loud to get good blues tone. Are there any pedals that you would recommend? Hope this is not heresy!

Just wonderin if you have a good suggestion to my question above. I'm not a big pedal fan but the amp/ guitar combo needs a liitle help....what was your set up with Bob? I know you must have had to cover a lot of bases. Anyway, loving the lessons and Happy Fourth

BK, Saw that you are enjoying the Blues Driver. I use a Bad Monkey tube distortion pedal and swear by it. It's only about $40 but I think it sounds like real small amp overdrive. Duke

I got a Fender 1963 Boss reverb pedal to go with my 1963 Princeton Amp. Interesting that such a thing was available. I added a Boss Blues Driver BD2. Sounds like I hoped it would. Really nice modest set up.....

BK, nice guitar and amp combo. Sounds klike you are all set but if you want to try a nice tube sounding overdrive pedal try the Bad Monkey! It's very inexpensive and it sounds great. it's all I use. Duke

I have been practicing mixolydian mode against single chords. G against a g7 chord. C against a C7 chord and so on. The g mixolydian starting on A follow an A minor patten. Fifth fret the g mixolyian notes follow the A minor note pattern, same notes In that position. So if you play a G 7 chord, I can play an A minor pattern at the fifth fret and I am playing g mixolydian notes. Even though they are same notes in the different positions just different starting notes, I detect a difference in tone and feel. How much does the starting note and ending note effect improvisation? My goal is to know the mixolyian notes for a particular chord any where on the neck, but have notice sometimes they sound great and sometimes they don’t. Am I over complicating this process?
