Eric Johnson. I don't get any emotion coming from his playing, but his guitar sound is great.
Why would anyone care about tone if they don't care for anything else about a guitarist?
I'm sorry, maybe a musician would, me it's all about dissonance and distortion
Love his sound with Ricky Nelson
Mark Knoffer (i'm slowly coming around on this one)
Bluesbreakers era Clapton
Yngwie Malmsteen. Lovely tone, sounded interesting for approximately 2 minutes.
I do, too!! The funny thing is that the strings that gave the guitar that tone were banjo strings!! He used the following string setup:
D & A guitar strings
I believe that string setup is correct. If it's not, someone can correct me. He mentions his string setup in those days on his "Hot Licks" instructional DVD, "The Legendary Guitar Of James Burton"
What gauge were the banjo strings?
Did his parents actually name him that?
Oops I misread
Blackmore circa Stormbringer. The same old aversion to anything melody related, but with a new lack of interest in anything Purple. Pity, his sound on that record was to die for.
Joe Perry. Great sound, and he's written some great riffs. Hell, nobody writes a circular rock riff like Joe Perry. But, the vast majority of his solos are just widdling. Yeah, every so often you get a bar or two of genius, but the rest is just filling time.
I actually like Blackmores tone most of the time. What I didn't like about his tone was way way too much keyboard in the band!!
SRV. After you hear the same lick in every song it starts to get grating. I would also add all of the 'virtuoso' players to that list.
Yep. 80's Beck too.
People like James Burton's tone, but don't like his playing? I don't understand that... The tone comes from the playing... you can't just plug in a Telecaster and sound like that. Maybe you've never heard Open Up Your Heart by Buck Owens, or Milk Cow Blues by Ricky Nelson.
Roy Buchanan is my favorite tone.. Then,..Kenny Vaughn,.. [plays Tele for Marty Stewart and The Superlatives...]...
Neil Schon. I like the sound of his guitar, and some of his playing, but to me, Journey is the cheesiest band on the planet. So over-emoted and contrived.
