I started playing about a month ago, and just started taking lessons last week. I really enjoy Blues (SRV and the like), early and classic Rock. I play on a budget so I have to be careful what equipment I get at this point. I would appreciate any suggestions on "must haves" such as pedals. I don't want to repeat purchases due to getting the wrong equipment. I have a Epiphone Les Paul Signature Semi-Hollowbody that has incredible sound but that I think is not comfortable to put my arm around (It is fs/ft on TGP). I also have a Marshall 30 watt amp with some effects built in. The distortion isn't too bad but I was thinking I should be using pedals for effects. Thanks in advance for your advice!
