If you count "bluesy" rock as blues, then there have been countless famous recordings using either humbuckers or single coils. I don't think you can really say that the genre favors one over the...

New strings sure seem to help me as well, though I can still do them with old strings; it just takes more effort.

I've found that a fresh, sharp pick also helps.

Hey guys,

I recently bought a used MXR 10-band EQ for $70 with the adapter. I already have one so I knew what to expect. Anyway, I was hoping to run this one in front of the amp as more of a...

Try getting it up off the ground before you spend any money. Or if you can, try it tipped back against the wall so the speakers are angled up at you a bit more. Sometimes that will surprise you on...
