LOL, please bear with me on this question. I hope I don't sound like an idiot.
I've been trying to learn to play the guitar for a few months now.
I keep seeing peoples pedal set ups and have no idea what they do or why they do it.
Is there somewhere you can go to learn about effects pedals? Like a web site that explains what they are for.
I see pedal boards with multiple pedals, folks talking about Loops, Clean, Driven, Effects and I'm like
It's basically just for people who want different sounds than what your guitar straight into the amp produces. I see that you have a Vyper which has effects already built in so you should mess around with those before you look into buying anything. Or you could go for a multieffects pedal which will cover most of your bases pedalwise and you would be able to see which effects you would like to look into more. To be honest when you first start playing I wouldn't worry to much about effects and just to work on your playing. I've been playing guitar and bass for eight years and I've only acquired 5 or 6 pedals and I don't use any of them in my main rig.
