(Music Pro Guides). Although we live in an age of innovation and disruption, many folks are content using new technologies to consume rather than create especially musicians. Case in point: for many guitarists, the notion of electronic enhancement starts at their instrument's output jack (or mic) and ends at their amp. Such myopia comes at a price, as Guitar Gods do not live on chops alone... Guitarists need only meet two criteria to maximize their creative potential: superior skill with their axe of choice and some degree of familiarity with the latest relevant technology. From the hardware in your instrument to the rig you plug it into, from the synths tweaking your sound to the DAW that brings it all together, your tone is at the mercy of myriad circuits, software, gizmos, and gadgets. In The New Electronic Guitarist , Marty Cutler puts more than thirty years of expertise at your fingertips, explaining the nature and history of guitar synthesis before walking you through all the tools you need to find your sound. This unprecedented, pragmatically subjective book contains everything you need to know while scouting and adapting today's finest products and technologies to your favorite guitar. From the Beatles to Prince, from Hendrix to EVH, all the greats have obsessively managed and altered every element that influences their tone. Why restrict your creative potential? Boldly take your twentieth century rig into the twenty-first with The New Electronic Guitarist !
