What Is "TGP Wrong" With This Picture?

I came upon this shot while watching a video, and had to stop the frame so I could absorb the shock of how wrong this looks from my TGP-trained perspective:


This setup was used by a guitarist who should have known better. ;)


There are several blatant violations of tacit TGP culture here. Let's see how many you can name...

I don’t know about TGP, but the cords look to be in the way of actually stepping on things smoothly or moving the foot pedals. Not saying it didn’t work for the guitarist, but it seems like the pedals could have been placed so that they were clear of the cords.

The biggest issue I see is how everything is scattered in what looks like a largely unusable way...mostly the 3 treadle pedals oriented different ways. That's really bugging me.
The wiring is a rat's nest too, but if it works that's all that matters.

We should all chip in and buy him a cheap Pedaltrain board, a 1 Spot, some short cords and some Velcro :)
Now you're talkin'! He definitely needs a pedal board. The 1 spot wouldn't help with batteries, however.
