The History of Fuzz Pedals in Four Minutes or Less

In new this video, which hit the interwebs November 1, Mark from Guitar Nerds runs through the history of fuzz pedals in four minutes "or less." It looks like the video is actually four minutes and 15 seconds long.

Can he fit that much fuzz into four minutes? Find out!

This is actually an entertaining, informative video, which isn't a surprise; we're fond of the clips produced by the Guitar Nerds gang, which include:

The 10 Weirdest Gibson Guitar Models Ever Created
Top 10 Fender Stratocaster Facts You Probably Didn't Know
Top Five Gibson Les Paul Facts You Probably Didn't Know.

Be sure to follow Guitar Nerds on YouTube.
