You can’t play electric guitar in any sort of rock or blues band without one or more distortion pedals. Distortion defines the sound of Rock guitar playing. But, there are so many different types of distortion pedals. How do you know which one is right for your playing?

This lesson covers the basics on the types of distortion pedals, how they work, their sounds, and which ones work best in certain styles of guitar playing. Enjoy! - Steve Krenz
