I think it was Waylon Jennings who said: ‘The only two things in life that make it worth living, is a guitar that’s tuned good (through an EarthQuaker pedal) and firm feelin’ women.” So there you have it. They can do no wrong.




Were you really into pedals before EarthQuaker?

WP: I’ve never been into pedals. I’m teaching myself all about this whole guitar thing. I’m still figuring it out. And for a new guitar player, pedals are really scary. In a live sense, I think they’re terrifying. If you’re trying to play and have to remember when to click your pedal on, that’s really scary. Recording is really fun, because then you don’t have to do it live. You can get comfortable with that stuff and integrate it into the live set. And those ‘out-there’ pedals are really fun. It inspires you as a songwriter so you write a song that you would have never come out with if you didn’t have that specific tone, with that one pedal. Our song, “Young and Pure,” I would’ve never played it the way I played it without the Afterneath.
