How many times i gotta say this. Tone is in the hands! Pictures don't lie:
i think you have to see it like a woodworker and his tools ....without his knoledge and his vision of what work should be done the tools alone wont do the job...but with good tools he can achieve his goal..with better tools he will work better
The million $ thought.
Phasing is just as important.
Just like a guitar player doing the box pentatonic and then listen to Billy Gibbons.
...And ALL of those you mention, I would bet-- wouldn't tell someone on a gear forum who's talking about the tones made possible by various equipment that it was the hands, BECAUSE they can and do differentiate between 'what' or 'how' something is played/performed versus discussing the tone of what was played BECAUSE they know what a mix is and that instruments need to sit where intended within the mix and in order to do that they recognize that the TONE the gear produces-- matters.
driving me to drink & i really dont drink anymore..but i do have a bottle of , The Mccallan 12 scotch, Jonnie Walker black, makers mark 46 small batch bourbon, knob creek,woodford reserve,Elijah Craig select, sitting on my shelf if anybody who lives near me wants to jam on marshalls dimed & wants to decide where tone comes from...maybe we figure it out..maybe we wont...lol but we gonna make sure my neighbors know what it is
Good illustration of the difference between the art of Playing vs the art of Writing vs the art of Engineering vs the art of Producing. Part of being great is choosing the right tools for the job at hand.
Bft you know if I was close enough, you would end up having to evict me! Cheers Mitch
lol...it would be a blast to put ..what..are we considered old now ? put us in a room full of marshall's with no noise limit..can we skip the mid 80's spandex tho?! I think i Saw Bon Jovi & Cindrella in the Philly Spectrum mid 80's..spandex was the norm..with bandannas on ankles & wrists...hair done up with hair spray...i stayed just long hair regular,,no make up or hair spray or spandex..i am prob still mad metallica cut their hair...tho
Just to set the record straight 1. I never in my life have used hair spray, 2 have not worn spandex pants since September of 1983, our last gig as Sorcerer! But the music and tones I play with are forever cemented in that era ! Cheers Mitch ps I only put face makeup on once, it was a lightning bolt, in about 1978
lol me too,,thats why i clarified... think i am stuck between zep-sabbath-JP & AC/dc range
Same here bro, it timeless in my opinion, has stood the test of time and generally speaking still rocks, there are some newer bands that are putting out good old raunch and roll, just don’t expect to hear them on the radio! Cheers Mitch
Tad bit late to this pablum party, eh?
Hmm... pablum (overly bland or simplistic)...
... or pabulum (fodder, for plants or animals)?
'Cause it's mostly swill and hogwash, for kids.
Here's something shocking. It's both.
Gawd help us!
Tone is all about harmonicas. The guitar must work with it not soak it up. The amp has to respond to it.you have to study how it works.great tone comes from a lot of things not just one thing. You must know what you want
I can't believe there is still people who think equipment is why they sound good.
It's work that makes you sound good, not money.
Your ability as a musician is what makes you a good player. You can't buy that anywhere.
I can build the best sounding amp in the universe but only a great player will make it sound good.
Otherwise it's worthless, a complete waste.
