Boss Chorus Pedal

Understanding & Using The Boss Chorus Pedal

Back in the eighties, the Boss chorus pedal was flying of the shelves of music stores all over the world. Now it’s not so popular as it once was. Part of the problem is probably that it is far to easy to add on to much effect and drown the initial intent of the guitar line. This did not stop Kurt Cobain making use of a Boss chorus as well as the Electro-Harmonix box.

What’s Included In This HD Video Lesson

Gary Clinton is one of GMI – Guitar & Music Institute’s main tutors. It’s Gary who has created and demonstrates the entire course on guitar pedals titled “Pedal Power”. In this lesson, Gary takes you through the various knobs and control parameters.  He also goes on to demonstrates how to best blend sounds together. To show just how effective this pedal can be, Gary briefly demonstrates the Nirvana song “Come As You Are” with the chorus effect added. Another artists who used chorus to great effect is Prince in the beginning of Purple Rain.

Each of the controls are covered which include level, EQ, Rate and Depth. In each case, Gary shows how using a little to an extreme amount of effect actually changes the basic guitar signal.
