Ive been playing guitar since december 2007...and I still dont much about overdrive thingy. I have distortion, but some songs I wanna learn use overdrive and i have no clue what that is and stuff. Wanna help me out here? What is it, and you would need to buy what? And why is it different?
Avenged Sevenfold Fan, proud of it.
If your amplifier has overdrive you do not need to buy anything. You just press the button or switch on your amp and it will distort the sound.

If your amp does not, then you will need to buy a distortion pedal.
Overdrive and Distortion are essentially the same thing. You can use both, they both distort your sound
