    I guess for this song. But you could post other classics.





    I am avoiding google.

    I actually recorded this song a few years ago, at a buddy's Pro Tools home studio- just fior kicks.
    I did a double tracked vocal and 3 guitar parts, and by buddy who is a recording rat , did the acoustic guitars, the bass, drum tracks, and all background voices.
    I spent 3 hours on song, and he spent weeks and it turned out great.

    I used my MIM Telecaster ( using all 3 pickup positions for 3 parts) into a cranked Fuzx Face type fuzz, built for me by 11 Gauge! ( thanks, Keith)
    Into my buddy's SF Princeton Reverb- whisper quiet.
    Note: I used the fuzz, cranked on all 3 parts ( using Tele volume knob), and because we were in an apt., and I had to be quiet. you could not hear the guitar thru PR when fuzz was off!
    But it recorded great!

    Just built myself a tonebender pedal last week. I was playing with it today, thinking it sounds unlike any fuzz tones I know, and wondering what songs were made with one.

    This song sounds pretty similar to it!

    I think I remember reading the fuzz circuit was built into his guitar by some electronics guy he happened to know at the time.

    that seemed to be something a few toyed with back then to kick a clean amp into something a bit more...well gritty and raunchy

    Wasn’t it the kinks that cut a couple speakers up to get a sound.

    Yes I remember hearing about the 'sliced up speaker' story from two different instances in the 60s--Kinks' Dave Davies and if I'm recalling correctly the other one was a black soul musician in the US

    Now I'm not gonna be satisfied until I find what I'm half remembering, I'll update if I find anything

    I have the EHX 2018 reissue of the Triangle Big Muff--which is true to the original 1969 version of the triangle rather than the more common 1970/71 models--very butter smooth for a muff, lends itself well to whole 'violin-like' thing while still remaining deliciously tameless

    overdiven to ...well...good noise...a good tight working class band ..from near my area....north east england...some tight rhythm..and nice lead in it too
    lyrics poignant in uk back then ...and perhaps.....now
    if so then that makes it a classic due to relevance as to what is ha....ok ...make up your own minds ..heres the song
    england isnt all village greens and duckponds with red telephone boxes bowler hats and cor blimey guvnor...that is a MYTH i wish to dispel....it isnt like that here dont think it ever was...its a rough gritty place with rough gritty people...and all the better for it

    a different take...north east band covers another north east band. this version chugs powerfully along with bit of feedback creeping in again some nice lead licks in there

    Dylan Carlson's Earth--early pioneer in drone metal whose 90s work was highly influential on all the 'psych fuzz' metal that's so popular today
    https://equipboard.com/pros/dylan-carlson/fender-classic-series-72-telecaster-thinline?src=button
    played on a thinline telecaster no less
    "Well, I actually used one on “Phase III” on the first song “Harvey” and on “Tibetan Quaaludes.” And when I was, you know, gone for a while during my hiatus, I was listening to a lot of Tele players like Danny Gatton and Roy Buchanan, and Roy Nichols (Merle Haggard’s guitar player), a lot of Cornell Dupree, that R&B player. So it was the guitar I was listening to a lot and I remember how much I liked it back in the day. So I wanted to try something new, and I like the Telecaster how basic it is. It’s kind of like a guitar you have to work at or work with. It’s not super-easy to play like a Les Paul. It has its own thing that you kind of have to kind of know…I don’t know. Early Led Zeppelin was actually done on Teles, and it was the first solid body and the simplest one, and so that had a lot to do with it."

    heavy metal pioneers listen to Danny Gatton

    Yeah, there's the story of Dave Davies slicing up the speaker in his Elpico amp.

    But the thing is, he daisy-chained the Elpico into an AC30, and I'll betcha dollars to donuts Shel Talmy put the microphone on the AC30.

    good way to do it
