Epic Stereo Chorus For Guitar [Not Just For The ’80s!]

Published 17 Mar 2023

No! Don’t turn off! There are some genuinely awesome tones in this show

Welcome to the show! Now there are people who think chorus is cheesier than a pair of gorgonzola grundies… more roquefort than rock, if you will. I hope I die before I get mould? Ahem.
Before we condemn it to the leftover bins however, let’s at least understand what we’re throwing away. We’ll start by explaining the basics of the chorus sound, before a longer taste test of the three principle types of stereo chorus wafting from the gently ageing anals of music history.
After you’ve heard some of the epic tones in today’s show, we sincerely hope you’ll revisit the ol’ classic and grate some greatness back into your sound!

Enjoy the show…
