The Edge’s Guitar Sound … in maths!

Really enjoyed this link today. Because I am basically an engineering maths geek :)


Music is definitely all maths at heart. And never moreso than the relationship between delay echoes and beats per minute. I suspect The Edge didn’t discover his legendary sound by algebra, though!

For the rest of us – myself included – I made a simpler set of lessons in this U2 themed course. It’s worth remembering that by learning The Edge’s echo technique, you won’t be limited to just sounding like him. Delay is a really versatile tool. Once you’ve mastered it, you can easily adapt it to your own style.
