I'm gonna get my fist pedal it's a multi effect pedal, what I want to know is if I put it between the guitar and the amp or put in in the thing that says send return

I wouldn't recommend a multi-effects pedal. They generally sound horrible.

But to answer your question you would put it between your guitar and amp - if you put it in your effects loop and use distortions/overdrives it will sound terrible!

It should look like this:

Guitar ----> Multi- fx pedal -----> Amp

Provided your amp doesn't have an effects loop. If it does, you might want to experiment by putting it in there as well... plug the "send" into the input of the multi- fx, and the "return" into the output. The first method's much more conventional, though.

not if you get a good one

but if you want to use the models and all, put it in front of the amp. But if you want just effects put in effects loops. <---most of the time

Haha "good multi-effects" is an oxymoron. A good multi-effects pedal is very hard to come by.

If your a beginner or intermediate player you won't notice...
It may be good for you to get a multi-effects so you can experiment and try out everything.
You can figure which effects you need the most and buy the "real" versions of them

It annoys me when kids sit there playing the sweet child o mine or smoke on the water intro riff repeatedly
and badly
and so loud the whole shop can't hear themselves think
and with the worst amp settings possible

Good point... I often forget about the early days when you are oblivious to tone and you are just looking for something to experiment with and get different sounds.

be careful with the multi effects pedal if you are playing in a group.
its very easy to overpower everything with an overly elaborate tone.

By "elaborate", do you mean overprocessed? Or do you just have no idea what you're talking about?

yeah overprocessed, same idea

That's just bad tone in general... it's going to suck in any situation.
