    I'd put them in this order: overdrive, whammy, delay, chorus.

    I like to do my pitching after the distortion/overdrive. Actually, I'd put everything except the overdrive in the FX loop

    Yep, in agreement with Noumenon there on all points; except that I prefer delay last in the chain.

    Good question. The effects loop applies effects between the preamp and power amp. By plugging the overdrive or distorion into the amp's input, it allows the effect to overdrive the preamp. Modulation effects tend to sound better in the loop, while OD, Wah pedal, etc. tend to sound better straight in. Try different things, you will find that you like certain things in the loop and other effects straight in. I personally dont like a lot of effects, and only run a Boss Delay in the loop. My tuner and wah are straight into the amp.
