So far we've only used one pedal at a time with two full length instrument cables connecting our guitar to the pedal and then onto the amp. Now let's check out how to connect multiple pedals by using the smaller "patch cables".

From the "output" of the pedal, the patch cable goes to the "input" of the next pedal, and so on. This might seem basic, but 90% of the time when a pedal isn't working or your sound isn't coming through, this is the reason ... even for experienced players.
