Shawn Tubbs Visits TPS [Awesome Pedalboard, Session Playing Insight & More!]
Published 30 Sep 2022
Welcome to the show! We are delighted to welcome Nashville-based guitarist Shawn Tubbs to the show! Shawn was in the UK with Revv Amplification in September 2022 so we jumped at the opportunity of a visit.
In this video Shawn explains the basics of his tone and shares some insight into his unique style. It’s also early days for Shawn’s new pedalboard so naturally, we take a good look at that too!
Please check out Shawn’s channel on the ‘toob! https://www.youtube.com/c/ShawnTubbs
Enjoy the show!
