    A guitar pedal is a foot operated device that’s used for producing altered sound for an electric guitar. Functions such as reverb and distortion can be controlled  using a pedal.

    Two of Nashville’s most popular session recording musicians, Brent Mason and Paul Franklin, are among those who use the Benado Effects pedal.

    Hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day weekend and got to pay your respects to your loved ones, who have gone on. We visited the cemeteries where family members were laid to rest. On Friday afternoon, my daughter-in-law Marcia Barnes, who is interested in genealogy, and I visited the Needham Cemetery in Solway, where many of my relatives on my fathers’ side of the family were buried. I made pictures of many of the monuments, getting dates of births and deaths, which I didn’t have.
