One of the most common effects used in Country may not really sound like an effect at all. But once you hear it I'm sure you'll recognize the sound. I'm talking about the classic "compressor", and what it does is basically to reduce the volume of the loudest notes you play so that you end up with a very dynamically even sound. As a very handy byproduct it also warms up the tone and makes it sound more "polished" in a sense. Let me show you how it works.
