PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2011 NAMM Show where he visits the TC Electronic booth. In this segment, we get a demo of the new line of TC Electronic effects--the Tone Print stompboxes. These new pedals -- Corona Chorus, Flashback Delay & Looper, Vortex Flanger, Shaker Vibrato and Hall of Fame Reverb -- deliver tones right out of the box and feature a true bypass and analog-dry-through design that guarantees maximum tonal integrity and ultimate clarity. A small footprint, easy battery access and super high-grade components complete these awesome pedals. In short, they combine simplicity and flexibility with unrivaled sound quality. All these new pedals feature a new concept called 'TonePrint' that gives users instant access to the sounds of their favorite guitar heroes. A TonePrint isn't just a static preset, it's a complete re-tuning of the pedal including the sound and how the pots react -- everything that makes a pedal unique. TC Electronic has collaborated with some guitarists in the world -- such as John Petrucci, Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal, Joe Perry, Orianthi and Doug Aldrich -- to create the first batch of TonePrints, but that's just the beginning. The list of contributing artists will expand massively in the future. A simple USB cable connects these pedals to any PC or Mac for the actual Tone Transfusion. Each pedal is capable of holding one TonePrint at a time, but the concept is unlimited as users can swap TonePrints as many times as they want. All of these custom made TonePrints can be downloaded at TC Electronic's website -- it's easy, fast and totally free!

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.
