Fargen Releases the Pete Anderson Tumbleweed Pedal

Fargen Amps have teamed up with Pete Anderson for the Tumbleweed boost/compressor pedal.

Sacramento, CA (June 4, 2013) -- Fargen Amplification announces the Pete Anderson Tumbleweed pedal. This pedal is based on the original Tumbleweed circuit released under the Sonic Edge brand, with a new design and now made in the U.S.A. “My signature Tumbleweed brings clear sustain and clean gain, all in one pedal, just the way I like it. It’s nice to have someone to speak with in abstract terms about tone … Ben Fargen gets it. 100%,”says Pete.

Multi-platinum and GRAMMY Award-winning producer, artist and writer Pete Anderson will bring the Tumbleweed on tour with him, in support of his next album titled Birds Above Guitarland, available July 23rd.

“Pete is such an innovator and really commands his tone. He is the perfect partner to help create a cutting edge country/blues line”, says Ben Fargen, founder of Fargen Amplification. The Pete Anderson Tumbleweed pedal is now available via preorder through authorized Fargen dealers, for delivery in July.

MSRP: $299

On Black Midi's Cavalcade, Geordie Greep’s fretwork is an example of the 6-string as a capable component as much as a solo instrument, never completely stealing the show.

Popular music and mainstream tastes may be more fractured than ever, but the guitar continues to thrive.

As we soft launch into the new year, I’m not waiting for the requisite guitar obituary in the news. It’s not going to happen again anytime soon. Why? Because as far as the mainstream media is concerned, our beloved instrument is not only dead, it's irrelevant to the point of not even being an afterthought. When the New York Times published their most recent albums of the year list, there was barely a guitar-based recording to be found. Still, there is not only hope, but also cause for jubilation.

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.
