Guitar Effects Explained (eBook)
« on: September 15, 2017, 03:49:30 AM »
         
More than ever before, guitar players are using effects pedals to optimize their tone, or extend the range of sounds available in their playing. It is not uncommon to see guitarists with pedalboards holding 10 or more pedals. The Golden Age of effects may be here, or it may be yet to some, but no matter which, one thing is sure, there are plenty of options existing and affordable for any musician.

Guitar Effects Explained is the book for anyone interested in the technology of echo, reverb, flangers, phasers, distortion and much more.

**********************************

Distortion Pedals Explained is also available on Amazon and is the book for guitarists using distortion pedals who are curious to find out whatís going on inside those colorful boxes on the floor. Distortion Effects Explained digs deep into what makes a fuzz, overdrive, octave or amp-in-a-box pedal.

**********************************

These books are written in a conversational style that should appeal to DIY Makers, hobbyists and guitarists with only a small amount of math and scientific jargon. You donít have to be an engineer to enjoy the books, so letís get started!

These Kindle ebooks can also be read on your smartphone with the Kindle app, or with a laptop or PC using Kindle for PC. A Mac reader for Kindle books is also available.

Also, check out my complete selection of ebooks.

Thanks for viewing! 

Best regards, Jack

+1 good luck. Anything that explains more things to more people is good with me! I'd like to see more people getting into pedals, and more people getting *deeper* into pedals. If you can do anything to help that happen (and I believe you're well placed to do exactly that!) then you've got my full support. Go, Jack!

Paper version is all done except for the back cover. I need to take some time while I'm off during the holidays and get it finalized!

Thanks for your interest,

Jack

Congratulations Jack.  It takes a fair amount of work putting something like that together.

Thanks for the interest.

I apologize for the delay.  I have developed a serious problem with one of my eyes, which has slowed me down in working on a lot of projects including this one.

I do plan on getting the paper version finished, and it will be available to ship to the UK and other countries.

Thanks again, Jack

Hi Jack, I hope you get you eye problem fixed soon. Good luck with the books.
It's fairly straight forward, if you want to start it , press start. You can work out the rest of the controls for yourself !

Thanks for the comments.

Unfortunately, I do not think there is a fix for the eye problem any time soon. The ophthalmologist says it should stabilize, but it seems to have stabilized as blurry. It makes working with a computer monitor somewhat difficult.  >:(

Best regards, Jack
