Favourite guitars tones ever?
« on: October 29, 2017, 03:30:40 PM »
This one has driving me crazy for a while. IMO its one of the best I've ever heard captured on a recording.

This band is top class everything - however Greg Howe's tone is simply out of this world crazy ......



What's yours?

I still love Hendrix... too many examples to name. And I really like Buddy Guy's tones on the "Slippin' Out"  album.

I'm with T.C. Nothing tops Hendrix for me. And although I love all of his recordings, one that stands out for guitar tone is Band of Gypsys. I just love the tone of his guitar on that album. I think perhaps what makes it unique is the octavia effect he used on it. What a great sound!



"Machine Gun" starts at 4:40. I love that recording, especially the sections that start at 8:20 and 9:07. And the sounds starting at 11:30 are awesome.

+1 on Hendrix.

Gotta love Eddie Van Halen "Unchained" though...




... and don't forget Nuno Bettencourt:

Slightly obscure, but the opening guitar solo on this late 70's Japan track by Rob Dean has the sweetest tone. It was a few years before I started playing guitar, but I've always had this little guitar part as a constant source of inspiration.

It's all over within 40 seconds, so no need to listen to the whole shebang.

Great choices all - suprising the range of tones on display, a very cool listen to all of these.

Doing some research - I stumbled on this.



My brain just exploded - I do not comprehend. What's the deal with the hair band at 2:32 as well?

I'm not worthy!

The melody which comes in at 0:51 seconds is the tone I've been chasing for nearly 30 years. This is such a touching song, too. Gary singing about his pal, Phil.

Then the melody kicks in at 5:45 & I've got goose bumps!

Sounds like I'm being deliberately contrary for the sake of it, but to me you struggle to beat the sound of a good telecaster and an overdriven AC30. And for me Robyn Hitchcock's is as good as it gets. I'm a simple lo-fi sort of guy.
