Now that you know how to connect and power up your pedals, it's time to look at another very important factor, which is the order of the pedals. If you only use the pedals one at a time, this is less of a big deal; but when multiple pedals are engaged they affect each other.

There's no right or wrong in this, and I encourage you to experiment freely with your own setup. But in this lesson I'll show you some general guide lines that can help you avoid any unwanted quirks. First we'll look at some overall categories, and then we'll get to the more specialized pedals in the next lesson.
