Hey man,

first of all, congratz on the content and the youtube vids, great content!

I actually just started a guitar lesson blog myself, been thinking about it for a while it seemed like a good way to help out any guitarist in need, plus it helps myself out as well, gotta know what your teaching right :P

But I'm totally new to this, posted my fist article a few minutes ago and...I don't really know what to do now :P, your the first blog I subscribed to.

Could you or anyone else reading this perhaps share a tip or two?

thx and again, cool stuff

Other than the delay, what other effects are you using for this? An overdrive or distortion pedal? And do you change effects between the power chords and the delay picking part of the song? It sounds cleaner when you get to the delay part of the song.
