Hi and thanks fro checking out LR Guitar…:) The LR is me, Lyle Robinson, and while I don’t want to come off totally pretentious, the site will be about me as a working guitar player, guitar teacher and lover of all things guitar related!

This site will include lessons, guitar life stories and anything else that I’m in the mood to add…guitar related of course.

I’m going to do as much as I can on video so that you don’t have to read a bunch of text. There will also be a combination of text and video to impart as much knowledge as I can on ya!

So please feel free to check out LR Guitar and if you have any questions or comments, you can contact me via my contact page or leave a comment in the box below and I’ll try and help you the best way that I can. Enjoy!

Cry Baby: The Pedal That Rocks The World from Joey Tosi on Vimeo.

Cry Baby: The Pedal That Rocks The World tells the story of the wah wah effect pedal, from its invention in 1966 to the present day. Musicians, engineers, and historians discuss the impact of the pedal on popular music and demonstrate the various ways it has been used, as well as how its evolution has improved the ability of artists to express themselves musically. The film features interviews with Brad Plunkett, the inventor of the pedal, plus many other musical luminaries such as Ben Fong-Torres, Eddie Van Halen, Slash, Buddy Guy, Art Thompson, Eddie Kramer, Kirk Hammett, Dweezil Zappa, and Jim Dunlop. These professionals explain how a musical novelty transcended convention and has become timelessly woven into the fabric of modern pop-culture.
