Welcome to your Master Class on tone.
In Part I. Electric guitar types, you’ll join Mason Stoops at Electro-Vox Studios in Hollywood, CA to learn about the history of the electric guitar.
A common mistake that beginner guitarists make is relying too much on gear for good tone. In Part II. Touch and feel, you’ll learn how to achieve a great sound on the gear you already have using just your fingers and picks.
In Part III. Amplifiers, you’ll learn how to get the tone you want from any type of amplifier and decide which type of amp is right for you.
In Part IV. Pedal basics, you’ll learn the basics of setting up your pedal board, which effects to use, and what order to place your pedals in. We’ll also go through Mason’s favorite settings from each pedal he uses.
Lastly, we’ll link to some budget-friendly gear recommendations to get you set up with an effective rig.
Let’s get started with the first lesson.
