The Fender G-DEC amplifier has 50 preset sounds and most of them are of the fuzz family. I like fuzz. I first heard it on a song by the Ventures called "The Thousand Pound Bee". The fuzz device sounded like a Gibson Maestro, which was the ugliest sounding fuzz ever invented. But it was first. The Stones may have used it on "Satisfaction". However, fuzz has come a long way since the early 60s and I decided tonight's NightSong would be a simple "demo", if you will, of some of the better fuzz sounds in the amp. They all get the same meandering, mindless, Tufnelish solos and must exist on their own distorted merits alone.
