    SRV, did he ever use his little finger to fret?

    Yup. This box is the foundation of a lot of my playing. All those fourth frets I (usually) hit with my pinky. Although I do move around the fretboard a decent amount as well.

    SRV, did he ever use his little finger to fret?

    I use my pinky a lot. I have better technique than SRV. This is my greatest achievement.

    Compression Headaches

    I love my MXR. With that said, if I were purchasing again, I might get the Wampler Ego for the blend knob.

    Mids Boosting A Big Muff Pi fuzz?

    I've heard good things about Tubescreamer types in front of Muffs to tighten things up a bit. Haven't tried myself, but makes sense.

    "Tone is in the hands" - silliest buzzword of the decade?

    "I'm pretty sure there are many talented funk guitarists who can play those simple riffs just as well as Nile." Oof.

    What "Music Theory" REALLY Is... imho...

    I'm working my way through an Eric Krasno (Soulive) masterclass (via Marty Music). Was $60 I think, but I've seen it on sale for $30. He doesn't go too deep into theory, but stuff like if we're jamming over G7, and I'm playing rhythm, I'll play X, Y, and Z and then I'll add the #9 here and...

    So I joined Instagram

    IG can be good -- I follow some cool guitar-related accounts, some funny meme accounts, and friends and family (only the ones I like). I post occasional "stories" (i.e. photos that disappear after 24 hours), mainly just pics of the baby to keep family across the country in the loop.

    Post yer pedalboard

    some pedals are worse than others and a few similar pedals can be okay. I have most of mine (inc. all digital) on isolated slots. I have my overdrives daisy-chained so that I have just the one power-supply plug for the whole board. This is a much better option than 10 wall-warts into...
