Better quit worrying about those pedals and think about what you are playing!
- Is it a good part?
- Does it fit?
- Will it stand out or is it safe and insignificant?
I personally don’t mind being spoon fed a part a producer hears in his/her head, but it is so cool to play something that turned his ear another way and spurned more creativity. Things like:
- Note choices
- Feel choices
- Tone (pedal) choices
Shed on it … “I wanna know YOU when I hear YOU”…. 🙂 Here’s a hint though… If the fingers don’t hold any magic, the pedals are of none effect…
