    I've found that you have to just let gravity do it instead of trying to do it?

    Can anybody tell me what would be the best pedal I could get for a blues sound?

    I google it and here are 4 of the 5 top results. The 5th is $1499 so that's out.
    Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Boss B2 Blues Driver Fulltone Fulldrive 2
    $99.99 $99.99 $127.20

    I don't know much about the others, but I've never been at all dissatisfied with any Boss pedals.

    Speaking of the Ibanez Tube Screamer, their retro "tube screamer" amp looks kind of PeeWee Herman-ish:

    Curious how the mechanical spring reverb sounds.

    Somehow it reminds me of 50's Nash Rambler. I should probably go to Guitar Center and try them and then buy the one I like online for cheaper.

    Never understood why they would do that. Maybe they were smashing knock offs instead of real guitars, idk. I'd kill to have a real strat or a real Les Paul and these idiots are lighting them on fire and smashing the ass out of them. Sort of makes me mad a little.

    I've always wondered if they substituted cheap knock-offs for the smashing finale. The Who was smashing instruments as far back as 1967. I doubt if they made anywhere near the kind of money they would make later.

    Back in 1964, a 1964 Stratocaster was probably affordable to a garage band guitarist...not as expensive as one is today.
