A nifty little trick that'll make your six-string soundscapes sound much bigger.

Guitar instructor Paul Davids—whose videos we like featuring on this here website from time to time—just released a new one, detailing how exactly to nail the dotted 8th note delay sound.

Davids elaborates on how you can transform some regular 8th notes into an impressive-sounding barrage of 16th notes using only a delay pedal, in the process making simple guitar parts sound much more complicated.

You can check out the video, and try the technique out for yourself, above.

You can find this video and much more on Paul’s YouTube channel.
