A kill switch with memory and loop functions.

Eau Claire, WI (June 23, 2014) -- Memento from Dwarfcraft is a kill switch-an upgrade to a standard kill switch, the ultra-simple, super-effective tool employed by artists as diverse as Norman Greenbaum, Tom Morello, and Collections of Colonies of Bees, but it’s so much more...

Specs:

  • This can function as a standard kill switch with the “kill” stomp.
  • Memory - Memento remembers your kill pattern, and with the tap of the “re-kill" switch, repeats it back in a loop!
  • You can also tap the kill switch while in re-kill mode to double or quadruple the speed of the loop, creating glitched out waves of sound.

Memento will retail for $125.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
