Six String Sensei Guitar Resource Since 2005

Six String Sensei has been a guitar resource since 2005. That’s right. I started this project back in the days of Myspace and before Facebook or YouTube had even set a proper foothold on the internet. I initially used this site as a tool for my own progression as a guitarist. Remember, this was back when there wasn’t that much guitar information on the web.

Today, Six String Sensei continues to be a passion project. I work on it for fun because I love music and I love the guitar. Currently, I cover a lot of topics but I focus quite a bit on guitar effects pedals. I love pedals just as much as any guitarist so I’m constantly trying new ones and coming up with elaborate pedalboards. Come enjoy this journey with me.

My View On Effects Pedals and Multiple Guitars

Let me tell you something about guitar gear, particularly guitar effects pedals. I believe the most important thing regarding playing guitar and improving daily, is to play a often. Essentially, play daily. I understand that some guitarists are against pedals and effects. I also understand that there are guitar players who like pedals, but are pretty minimal about them. Same goes for guitars themselves. Some guitarists have three guitars, and some have twenty. It’s just a matter of preference.

The one great benefit of experimenting with various guitar pedals and effects is that it can inspire you to play more often. Having various guitars in a collection can also inspire you to switch things up and try new tones. This combination can yield many more practice hours. This inspiration can get you lost for hours savoring new sounds. More time on your instrument usually equates to a huge leap in improvement. That’s my argument towards varied guitars and effects.
