comment Does using a capo put you out of tune?
John McLaughlin is credited with saying, "Guitarists spend half their time tuning, and the other half playing out of tune." Tuning your guitar is something you'll have to get used to doing, whether you use a capo or not.

@InternalConspiracy - I think you're onto something good. I would say that "broad is better than deep" and recommend that we keep the hierarchy to effects-chorus instead of going 3 levels deep.

@Jduv - I can't imagine that he would take offense. Please update the answer - that's why this is CW, and is entirely in the spirit with which I asked the question!

Thanks, Alistair! I figured this was destined to be CW, but some people are saying that CW is deprecated now, so I didn't want to put that in the question itself.

I am creating some "stub" answers intended to be improved and updated by those more expert than I. This question is a result of discussion in the comments of another question.

comment What to look for in a budget guitar for home recording?
As an aside, I have never been unhappy with an Ibanez. I cannot imagine you'll find a better electric under $200.

Excellent points, CyberFerret! You are right. My "how it feels is more important than how it sounds" bias is showing! I guess I assume a certain baseline of quality is established and then a choice is made!

comment Ibanez Edge III Tremolo has 2 'Zero' points
These nightmares (on top of the fact that I have enough trouble playing guitar without an extra input) are why I have hardtails!
