Restring for Strength!

By Bobidge

Replace your second thinnest string (B) with a thicker one, and tune it to B but an octave lower than normal. Don’t be afraid to “Double Up” on guitar effects and use two of the same, works especially well with two delay pedals. Be careful with the amount of distortion if you double fuzz/distortion though. Play with thicker strings for a couple for months and then switch back to the lighter gauge, your left hand strength will be huge. Don’t rush straight for a huge amp, I still use a piddly 15watt cranked up as much as it can go. Why would you want it to sound like your gear isn’t giving it everything?
