What is the difference between Distortion, Overdrive and Crunch?
Are they the same thing if not, how do they differ?
#2
there are long technical explanations for this but....

distortion - usually found on solid state amps. sound harsh at loud volumes
Overdrive - used with tube amps. much smoother and creamy. sounds better the louder it is
crunch - a mild version of overdrive

Yeah.. You can see the difference if you listen to some songs like:
Guns n Roses uses overdrive mostly..like Sweet Child o Mine intro
Most Punk rock bands like Green Day use distortion
And I cant really remember a song using crunch right now
