Electro-Harmonix Effectology, Vol.15 “Fanfare for the Uncommon Pedal” By Bill Ruppert guitar pedals

“Fanfare for the Uncommon Pedal”.

Bill Ruppert is back with another in his excellent series of Effectology videos where he uses just a standard guitar and a few well chosen Electro-Harmonix effects pedals to make some weird non-guitar noises.

To guitar players the most famous version is probably that by prog rockers Emerson, Lake & Palmer, from their 1977 album “Works Volume I“.
