In this tutorial we'll explore a very useful effect that you hear all the time in Country music. This effect is called "delay", which is the same thing as an echo effect. The reason it's called "delay" is that the pedal splits up your signal and delays one of them to create the echo effect.

There is one extremely common way to use this effect in country as well as a couple of odd balls that can be really useful to know as well. You can go crazy with delay effects and in some styles of music that's a big part of the sound. In country however, the most common delay sounds are fairly basic. The idea is typically to not notice the delay more than the actual guitar tone.

It's just a little extra "magic". Let's get started!
