Getting to grips with guitar effects can be a complicated business and there are so many different types that it can be difficult to know where to start. This Guitar FX video tutorial is a brief introduction to the most common effect.
This video lesson focuses on digital delay. Delay works by adding a copy of the guitar signal to the original, unaffected 'dry' signal after pausing for a certain amount of time. The resulting effect sounds like a sort of echo. Delay pedals also allow you 'repeat' the copy of the signal so that more than one echo is heard. To hear how this sounds, check out this video.
