Ok, so I just finished up one of the most productive practice session in a very long time. Out of it came a question. I have heard many people talk about pedal tones and the need to practice them. I would love to know the why behind that, however it isn't required as I will take the advice of the many solid players on here. In practicing them today I notice that I was never able to make them sound anything other than my room after eating a whole box of Fiber One granola bars. The question is, will these pedal tones ever sound good? Should I shoot for pleasant or are they supposed to sound like crap but have a purpose in their less than ideal sound?
