What I like about fuzz pedals is that they are forcing me to play and write music differently.
There is some serious beauty in single-note riffs when using a fuzz pedal.
And I also found that while playing the guitar with fuzz pedal, its great to write a riff with some silence-gaps that create good dynamics, tension and groove into the riff.
And if you play a power-chord or full chord and if the fuzz tone is clear and articulated enough, you have a weapon in your hands...
May the muse be with you!
