Board to Death Ep. 21 - Doug Gillard (Guided by Voices, Nada Surf, Cobra Verde)

Uri Garcia

Ohio native rocker Doug Gillard visited the EQD studios for our latest episode of Board to Death! Doug has played in many bands including Guided by Voices, Nada Surf, and Cobra Verde. Anyone who loves guitar can agree that to know Doug's playing is to love it. His hands ooze raw vibe and soulful expression, so we want you to realize that two of the pieces of gear being showcased are Doug's hands. If I were you, I would examine them closely and just PRAY that some of that mojo travels through the screen thing into your ocular tangerines, and eventually settles in your brain. Doug will walk you through his pedalboard which includes some well-known but extremely useful effects. As a Transmisser user, Doug has discovered a fun little way to use the device that you will all want to try at home. Unless your home is in outer space. Do not use any of our devices within the vacuum of outer space! They will not work and it will destroy your pedal, voiding the warranty! But, I digress.
