Gerry has very little interest in effect pedals, etc - the magic is in the fingers! Read the interview in Guitar Player magazine. I've noticed that no matter what type of guitar or set-up he uses - he always gets the same sound. Even though he uses a thumb-pick there is something mysterious in the way he attacks the strings - that is the secret to his sound! I'm not sure but I think he is using alternate tunings in some of his solo YouTube videos.
