Building a Guitar Pedal in 1969

Guitarist hooking up guitar pedals for a concert

Today’s podcast is about the first guitar pedal I built. If you’ve ever watched a rock concert, you may have noticed the lead guitar player using several foot-actuated devices to change the sound of their guitar. And, if you are old enough to have purchased the Beatles’ Rubber Soul album, you may have noticed in the liner notes that Paul played “fuzz bass” on “Think for Yourself.” Paul firmly established the use of guitar pedals in rock music.
