I made this in response to the lack of good shoegaze demos on YouTube. That's not to say this is the best there will ever be, as you can tell, but I feel it's a start if you're looking to get into playing shoegaze guitar. This is a remake of the first video I did, which I felt didn't adequately address how to achieve a nice shoegaze tone. This time around I wanted to do it with less modeling/built-in effects from my practice amp, hence the introduction of the reverb pedal. Plus the video/sound quality was nothing to write home about.

Rundown of my gear/settings:
- Fender Jaguar Classic Player Special HH
- Boss Digital Delay DD-3 with all settings at "12"
- Boss Super Chorus CH-1 with "Rate" at "12" and the rest at maximum
- Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail Nano set to "Spring" at maximum reverb
- Roland Micro Cube with maximum tone and gain on the "JC Clean" setting.

As I said, this works for me, but it may not be the sound you're looking for.
