Fingers Trump Feet
At the end of the day, no matter how decked-out your pedalboard is, the most important part
of your tonal equation is your fingers and how
they interact with what’s in your rig. “A common
thing I see is that a lot of players are always trying to chase someone else’s sound,” says hired-gun
Joe Augello (Jennifer Hudson, Robin Thicke,
Backstreet Boys). “Getting a Univibe and a Fuzz
Face because Jimi Hendrix used them isn’t going
to make you sound like him. Guys like Jimi and
Eddie Van Halen were innovators and always
experimented with their gear. They weren’t using
what everyone else was using at that time. It’s
important to develop your own voice and set yourself apart from everyone else.”
