Hands or gear?
Those who have not studied history are destined to repeat it.
I think the tone comes from the gear.......but good hands can find something great to play with the given tone from any given gear.
For example, I bet Jimi Hendrix could come up with something great from a department store guitar/amp set-up if you gave him enough time to tweak knobs and such.
I've purposely tried to dial in the worst possible, unusable tone on my AC30 and I cannot do it. Every possible tone can be used somehow no matter how twangy or dark
Is the last thread dead now?
Why am I here? Why am I replying to another tone thread?
Would somebody please hit me on the head with a skillet?
(Just make sure it's a vintage skillet that has a lot of sustain, and for God's sake use proper technique)
Tone is as tone does.
Mama always said...............
....that you could tell a lot about a person by their shoes
Tone is in the shoes.
Dude it has to be in the shoes.
...or is it the chocolates? Damn, I can't remember anymore.
I fart in Am
With some kegels, I bet you could develop full octave range, maybe more
The thread has been rescued! Y'all are my heroes tonight
If you suck at playing guitar, just buy a bunch of effects pedals.
Then get some Seymour Duncan pickups.
Then you will sound just like Jimmy Hendrix, and nobody will notice that you can't play.
It helps if you turn it up really loud and drown out the band, and the singer.
Oh yeah: buy a booster pedal so you can "cut through."
You are well on your way to being a rock star. Problem solved.
Did that horse come back to life? I thought it was beat to death...more than once. Horses must have 9 lives like cats.
Whaddaya mean "tone"?- I'm playing as loud as I can already.
Timbre [aka tone color or tone quality] is the psychoacoustician's multidimensional waste-basket category for everything that cannot be labeled pitch or loudness. (McAdams and Bregman 1979, 34; cf. Dixon Ward 1965, 55 and Tobias 1970, 409).
Bizarrely, I was taught that timbre does not depend on pitch or volume, being concerned with 'quality', whereas tone referred specifically to pitch, with the caveat that musicians often used it to refer to aspects of timbre as well, especially those pertaining to the character of the sound.
However - this WAS in the seventies whilst studying Electronic Music & Use Of Studio at the Cockpit Theatre under Howard "Harley" Davidson [ HD studied under Tristram Cary alongside Laurence Casserly, 'Harley' was our (Blitzfish's) nickname for him...] and we were more concerned with Peter Zinovieff, Peter Cockerell and Tristram Cary's wondrous VCS-3 to pay much attention to the niceties of tone and timbre in guitar/amp set-ups...
Fully, dude. It's like trying to explain "pocket" or "groove" to the non-drumming layperson. Interestingly enough, guys that don't really have it don't discuss it very much.
John Good from Drum Workshop uses the word timbre so much I wonder if he's copyrighted it. But it's been useful for him to promulgate the notion (to the interested listener, anyway) that drums are actual musical instruments with voices, fundamental notes and rich harmonic structures before they're even struck.
Gawd didn't help us!
