"When thinking about tone, consider the song to be a servant of the amp tone; music exists to enable us to listen to amp tone."

Well, I haven't checked out the site - yet.

As far as it goes, I'm a tone freak :twisted:

My prefered guitarists are usually those with a very well defined personal tone.

Hendrix didn't exactly have a definable tone so to speak.
He was an absolutely fantastic player.
And I enjoy listening to him....
Though I'd rather listen to Peter Green or the Beano album or Koss for their wonderful tones.
Or The Layla album - Two great tones.... Clapton/Duane Allman!!!!

Even my prefered Sax players are tone greats.
Coltrane - CANNOT MISTAKE HIS GREAT TONE.
And Dexter Gordon - Extremely Reedy 8) 8) 8) 8)

Statements like his may seem fanatical....
I can relate though.

I guess I'm just weird like that....

When I watch movies,
I watch them more for the directors than anything.
They are the stars to me.

Just another way to look at the same thing. :wink:

I really think there is a lot to be said about tone, just as long as an artist progresses and kind of changes tone or style a little. I would hate to hear a group keep doing the same thing over and over. Hendrix kept progressing his tone. The Beatles guitarists' changed their tones. You get my drift. It is great to have a great tone, but don't get stuck with the same tone forever!
It is a small world for metal fanatics. I welcome you fellow musicians, especially the metalheads!

Unless of course you're the Rev. Billy G. :wink:
Even tho he's kept to his tone, at least he's explored different ways to achieve it.
