Any Velvet Underground solo is out of tune
Quicksilver Messenger Service, Fresh Air
I never realized there were so many wonderful pitch bending performances out there. Maybe it's the nature of the guitar and we shouldn't give tuning that much credence.....................Naaaaaa.
Where is Dream On's solo out of tune?
Aren't all guitar solos out of tune?
Dream On, the intro, especially the last note of it makes my ears curl.
The very first slide guitar part on Badfinger's "Day After Day" seems to end on a note not quite right.
Good catch on Day after Day and the slide on Layla in a previous post. Pitch detectors at work.
The solo is Keef or Ron (It's got to be Keef right?) and definitely inspired. On what substance I know not. Way up there on the top of the list.
George Harrison, last note of "I Should Have Known Better" solo. It hurts now just thinking about it.
Yeeoouch! Those Rick twelves can wreak havoc. Must have been a hard days night.
Bah! you call them "out of tune guitar solos"? here's what an "out of tune guitar solo" sounds like:
actually, now that i think about it, maybe it ain't so much "out of tune" as just "crappy nonsense".
You're killin' me now. So terribly good.
I always feel bad for Jimi to this day, with all his antics on a stock strat back then his level of frustration with being out of tune had to be off the scale.
The one great thing I'm in debt to my older brother for is when I started playing guitar back in the 1970's was him teaching me to tune it, and keeping it in tune ALWAYS.
He'd always be tuning it for me when I first started playing telling me I'd wreck my "ear" for hearing notes properly if I kept playing with it not tuned perfectly. He had an amazing ear being in band from very early as a little kid.
To this day I can tell right away when a guitar is even a bit out of tune, it bugs the heck out of me.
The Heart shaped box solo sticks out for me but it's great.
I thought it was a well-placed and intelligent solo. Maybe "solo" isn't the word for this, as it doesn't seem to project the values of improvisation very much. It may have been off-the-cut, but it doesn't sound like it to me.
Buddy Guy at the checker board with the Stones, Awesome!
See, I always figured that was deliberate. George Martin would never have let something like that make it through to the record if the boys weren't OK with it.
At the time Martin was far more familiar with spoken word albums, and comedy.
This isn't a solo, but the Rolling Stones Hyde Park concert for Brian Jones. Keef was 'heroically stoned' and proportionately out of tune. I guess Mick Taylor, playing perhaps his first concert with the band, tried to help him tune his guitar and almost got his head bitten off.
I think it's interesting that a lot of the character of some of these songs stems from some parts of them being out of tune. I'd be willing to bet that Taking Care of Business was intentionally out of tune. It fits the song - some slacker telling you that being in a band and getting rich is easy...and then wailing out of tune. Brilliant!
