    Im reducing my pedal board and starting from almost scratch. Im keeping a cry baby, a tube screamer, and a memory man. I have 3 vacant pedal spots. I don't know what I want to fill them with, so any suggestions for killer pedals?

    I play rock, blues, funk, jazz... think steely dan. I want to incorporate more modern sounds though. The alternative rock, shoegaze sort of soundscapes. I hope that makes sense.

    I use a Les Paul out of a Hotrod Deville.

    Well that isn't very punk, is it?
    Shoegaze? You should get some reverb, fuzz(maybe a Big Muff), and maybe another delay.

    Can somebody explain to me what shoegaze is and where did the name come from?

    You need some modulation. A good Flanger will give you a Phase tone, a Chorus tone, a Leslie effect as well. I like the Ibanez AF-2 ($150) or my favorite the A/D A re-issue flanger ($250). Try a MXR Carbon Copy, I think you'll like it.
