Students very often ask me about overdrive and distortion. They oftentimes wonder what the difference is, how to use these effects, and if one is “better” than the other.
This following video is a bit lengthy at 23 minutes, but it’s a super fun to watch and very informative. It’s worth watching the video, just to see the absolutely amazing collection of pedals in the background. The room looks like a toy store for guitarists.
