Hey guys! I just signed up for the TGP forum. My friend directed me here upon my interest in picking up electric guitar. A little about me: I'm 16 (Whoo! Fun!). I lead worship at my church. So far, I'm playing mostly acoustic guitar and lately have been trying to play piano. I know my basic chord structure and theory. I've only poked around with the electric guitar a little bit. I think I really want to go more into electric guitar and expand my musicianship. For now I'm going to stick with an old Fender Strat (I think it's one of those from Costco) and an old DigiTech RP3. I'm going to practice more with these before I buy my own semi-hollow (currently eye-balling the Epiphone Wild Kat) and more pedals. Right now, I want to get some pedals to play with. I like feeling the knobs and tweaking sound that way. Does anyone have any suggestions for me on where to start off pedals/effects-wise? (I'm okay with used gear in good condition!) Here's what I'm looking for: -Budget/Starting-out prices -Not crappy quality (my ears won't know the difference, but it'll give me confidence knowing that it's somewhat good) -Not too heavy on the rock sounds. The most rock I'll go is old-school rock bands like Switchfoot and Lifehouse -Sometimes warm mellow strumming tones Sounds I'm influenced by and would like to emulate: -Tenth Avenue North -David Crowder*Band -Hillsong United -Starfield -Switchfoot -Lifehouse Please give me your opinions and suggestions! I'm a dry sponge and your knowledge is water!
