I have tons of great lessons at Master Guitar Academy. Join me there - it's where you can learn with me every week. That's also where all my DVDs and Premium Downloads are.

Have you Donated recently? Making these lessons is a lot of work. You can help keep them coming by providing a donation.

Slowing down songs is another great way to learn from records and your song collection. I use Song Surgeon, which works really well for this. Check it out.

Guitar Lesson Overview

Here is a nice patch I developed on the Line 6 HD500. It's a lead tone inspired by SRV and Philip Sayce. It's using a Blackface Deluxe Reverb model, with some Screamer and Fuzz Face added. Sounds awesome!

>> Update! See this video too - it has another cool fuzz face patch I made!

I played an old crappy Squier Strat copy on this clip. However, I upgraded the pickups to these sweet sounding 1950's pickups from Porter Pickups. They sound very sweet through the HD500 and of course they sound fantastic in a REAL amp! Give them a try if you are looking for vintage sounding single coils.

You can download the patch here on the CustomTone website.

Order the HD500 from Amazon
