The acoustic alchemist shares the secrets to his massive, multi-dimensional tones.

Dawes’ custom cable splits into the first three channels of a Bose T8S Tonematch mixer. This is where the pickups get EQ’d and blended. There’s light compression on the piezo/mic channel and a limiter on the kick drum channel is also used.

The DiMarzio magnetic pickup then feeds the Boss OC-3 Octave pedal, Joyo JF-14 American Sound, and a DigiTech Whammy Ricochet. These three pedals are looped into channels 4, 5, and 6 of the Bose mixer. The Joyo is also fed signal by a Dunlop mini volume pedal, allowing Dawes to fade in the sound of a dirty Fender-style amp.

Finally, the stereo outputs of the Bose mixer hit the Strymon Timeline which runs stereo out into a DigiTech JamMan Express looper and a TC Electronic Hall of Fame 2 reverb pedal. Those stereo outputs get panned left and right and out to FOH. A mono output of his kick drum channel also goes to FOH so they can use a more comprehensive EQ setup if necessary.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

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.
