Now it's time to check out a different type of distortion called Fuzz. This is a really cool sound that's used a lot in both rock and blues.

Fuzz can be a crazy effect, and fuzz pedals have all kinds of unpredictable quirks that players through the years have found all kinds of cool uses for. So for that reason, there are more different fuzz pedals than you could get to in a lifetime, and they all get really creative with the controls.

But in this lesson I'll introduce you to the Fuzz sound with a basic BOSS pedal, and even then you'll probably start to see how this type of pedal often has a will of its own.
