Default Guitar Effects without Pedals with Uffe Steen

Guitar World says that

While Steen was there, he filmed a remarkable demo video, in which he perfectly simulated the sounds of seven typical effects, without actually using any pedals.

Clearly, TC Electronic got more than they bargained for. "This is absolutely mindblowing!," read the caption on the company's Facebook post. "If every guitarist played like this, we'd be out of business \_(ツ)_/."

Great post, it demonstrates clearly how much influence the hands of the player makes on the sound. If your chasing a certain players sound you can have the same gear and play the same notes but unless you have the exact same hand technique you'll likely never get there.

Also, perfect Strat tone!!! To me that's exactly what a Strat sounds like and could be posted in the Strat tone thread.

Super video, what a guitarist. Makes me think back to all the posts I've read, "What guitar should I get to should like XXX?", "What amp do I need to sound like YYY?", "What pedal does so-n-so use?" So much of it is the skill of the artist.

Good post, Not sure its going to replace peoples love for effects. But it certainly shows how a lot of it can be simulated with good technique. repeating notes for delay volume control for tremolo ect. its great technique. Roy Buchanan. Showed many years ago what versatile sounds could be created by using volume control. He used to get almost a wah wah sound doing it.
