    I can only hope the La Grange model makes me play like that. :D

    Yep. You plug in, turn it on and it starts whining.

    Hopefully 2.8 hits the streets soon so that everybody can stop complaining about how long its taken to get released and instead complain about the features that weren't included in the release.

    I am confused, what about left handed people make them complain more.

    I've really wanted to love that one but never was really able to get something I loved out of it. That and it takes up a lot of DSP so it often got cut. Care to share any good settings?

    Nothing. Lefties whining more is the most made up thing I’ve heard in weeks. That’s more magical than a klon overdrive making milkshakes.

    I say it’s the envy of right-handers that lefties have an advantage in most sports.

    Isn’t it enough that lefties have to suffer cursive as kids and a far crappier selection of guitars as adults?

    Leave them be I say. We like lefties here!

    So, I'm not the best at really dialing things in so take whatever I say with a grain of salt. I tend to cut a good amount of bass, turn the dry through on, run heads 2 & 3 (I think? I'm not near my helix atm), mix somewhere in the 40% range, and I run it after my amp and before cabs. Also, I turn the headroom up to around 10 db but this is dependent on where you have the delay. I have a subtle delay that's always on and I put the cosmos just before it. I don't use it for rhythm but as a more washy sound filler delay (but I have it on a lot haha).

    I'm a lefty. I do everything lefty. Sports = all lefty. Except in lacrosse I was ambidextrous, cause you have to be in lacrosse. Tools = all lefty. Feet = all lefty. turns = all lefty. In bed = all lefty. I do everything lefty...except play guitar.

    One of the first things my college roommate taught me about guitar was that if I want to buy my own guitar eventually, I'll have a hell of an easier time doing it if I learn righty! Early in my playing career I thought, "playing righty makes more sense, my fretting hand is doing all of the more complicated stuff." But 13 years later, I've come to realize that the right hand is probably the more complicated hand. Hence why I can't hybrid pick or finger pick with more than two fingers!

    You should see me try and throw a baseball with my right hand. It's like a Jonas Brother trying to play a guitar solo.
