The ul­ti­mate gui­tar rig book?

Guitar Techniques - - Intro -

Hal Leonard Books have just un­veiled their lat­est book, Mod­ern Gui­tar Rigs, 2nd Edi­tion, by Scott Kahn (ISBN : 9781480355156, Price $29.99). This full-colour, up­dated edi­tion has been de­scribed as “the de­fin­i­tive book about build­ing and play­ing ad­vanced gui­tar rigs for play­ers who want to move be­yond a sim­ple pedal board and combo amp”. Mod­ern Gui­tar Rigs, 2nd Edi­tion, ex­plores time-tested tools and tech­niques that any se­ri­ous gui­tar player can draw upon to build a pro­fes­sional rig of their own.

Says Kahn: “A gui­tar rig by my def­i­ni­tion is the com­plete collection of tools used in de­liv­er­ing your sound. The rig in­cludes your amp(s), speaker cab­i­nets, ef­fects ped­als, and rack gear such as ef­fects, tuners, loop­ers, wire­less sys­tem, power con­di­tion­ers, foot con­trollers and pedal boards, and all the other lit­tle stuff that ties it all to­gether. A nice combo amp might be one com­po­nent in your rig, but if that’s all you’ve got, you have an amp, not a rig”.

Whether you’re play­ing clubs at the in­die band level, get­ting set for a ma­jor tour, head­ing into the stu­dio to record a new al­bum, or just search­ing for that ‘ul­ti­mate tone’, this re­vised and up­dated edi­tion should bring you the most cur­rent and ef­fec­tive sound-shap­ing tools and tech­niques, in­clud­ing amp set-ups, rack gear, ef­fects loops, rig in­fra­struc­ture, along­side some of the awe­some rigs used by gui­tar stars such as John Petrucci of Dream The­ater, Alex Life­son of Rush, and Steven Wil­son and John Wes­ley of Por­cu­pine Tree.
