An updated version of the company's classic fuzz that aims to offer more uncompressed tones.

Minneapolis, MN (July 24, 2018) -- This is not your father's Woolly Mammoth. It is highly uncompressed, very dynamic in its response to an eased-back pick attack, revealing a very pretty kind of distortion that releases overtones reminiscent of a Fender Rhodes or a Wurlitzer keyboard. On bass you can really tell the difference as a result of the larger signal level in the low end. It's pretty delightful and definitely much different from the sort of brick-wall character of the original Woolly. It's mellow with a bit of chirp on the pick attack. You can really extract a nuanced flavor because it has such a dynamic relationship with your fingers. It's an unexpected delight.

Well, the Nashville-based session star, producer, and frontman has played on hundreds of albums and 45 No. 1 country hits, starting with Jason Aldean’s “Hicktown,” since 2005. Plus, he’s found time for several bands of his own as well as the first studio album under his own name, All the Birds Sing, which drops January 28.

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.
