    I'd wager you're better than you give yourself credit for.

    I'm an acoustic rhythm guy; just can't seem to make sense of theory enough to play lead. So I've never considered myself to be very good despite playing in a band since 2005. I just figured I'm good enough for what they need. "When it comes to guitar, I'm a great vocalist" I've said.

    But then again enough other sound guys and players have complimented me on my "style" that I realized I must be doing something right.

    We're switching from a big band to a more stripped down, acoustic trio this year so it'll be interesting g to see what I can do when I'm not competing with a drum kit and electric guitar.

    So my son started taking lessons 2 weeks ago. His guitar is a beginners Peavey that came with a little 9v battery powered amp. We went by Guitar Center yesterday and got him a used Peavey Vypyr. Seems pretty cool, there are a ton of settings and effects built into it. Is the next step to get him a pedal for it? He's 15, so he's flying through the lessons and busy working on teaching himself to play songs he likes using tab apps on his tablet.

    You can get effects pedals, but I personally think that’s overkill with an amp that’s filled with effects already.
    Unless you mean the control pedal that’s made for the amp - in that case, yes, get that. It’s called the Sanpera, and it lets you program different effects combos and recall them, plus it gives you a wah/volume pedal. Should be able to find it used online.
