Revisiting The ZOOM G2.1u Guitar Effects Pedal

Taking a look at the Zoom G2.1u guitar effects pedal in a nostalgic playthrough of some of the effects on this maginificent value for money multi-effects guitar pedal.

I wanted to make a kind of tribute video for the Zoom G2.1u and it has served me well over the years and over one decade. I have played live with this trusty pedal and have also use other Zoom products such as the Zoom 9000 and the Zoom 505 which stretches back over 30 years from when I owned the Zoom 9000.

The Zoom G2.1u in this video will be given to my mum, as she is wanting to learn the guitar! 🙂

GUITAR IMPROVISATION With Lydian & Mixolydian

Improvising guitar melodies and solo licks for a potential tune which may end up as a song with lyrics or an instrumental. One kind of likes the way the Lydian mode plays off the Mixolydian mode over a droning B note which sound and tone can be manipulated with the modal sounds creating perhaps a kind of mysterious landscape. To be continued…

Guitar clips taken and edited from one long improvisational practice session in the dark depths of autumnal Somerset, UK.
