119 - Soundscapes with guitar        

From: scab

Date: 26-Jul-99


This can be done with any old guitar, some cheap effects (stomp boxes will do) and a pratice amp with distortion (or a distortion pedal).

Set up the signal path like this: guitar -> chorus pedal -> graphic eq -> amp (distorted channel on) Set the amp to a moderate level, enough to get a "pleasant" amount of feedback, subject to taste of course. Lean the guitar against the amp, pick-ups facing the speaker, so that the top of the amp casing is pressing against the fretboard. you may want to adjust your volume at this point. Now, adjust the chorus rate to a rhythmic level, so that you catch a groove with the modulations. Then, start tweaking the eq and weird things will begin to happen. As you cut certain frequencies and boost others, the sound, as well as the rhythm will change and morph into other rhythms. Sweeten the sound up with abit of reverb or delay for a background track, or catch a loop of it with your sampler and go nuts. Try it with a lowpass filter or parametric eq.
