i mustve heared this expression like 3 times this week,and i really wanna know what it means,
im pretty sure it has nothing to do with pedals though!
A pedal note (or pedal point) is a note that is repeated throughout a phrase, like this:


Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but whatever.
i know what a pedal steel guitar is,and thats not what i meant!
but i think kyrreca's right
but thats it?
Well, there are lots of ways to use pedal points. Yngwie Malmsteen and other neoclassical guitarists do it all over the place.
okay,i guess i should take this to the musician talk forum,but thanks anyway for trying to help guys
