Basic idea from any rate the above thread, rate the above guitarists tone. I'll start off with Mark Morton from LOG.

Btw sorry if there's a thread like this but I searched.

Well based on Laid to Rest and Walk With Me In Hell (Studio recordings) I'd say around 6.5/10. The generic metal tone doesn't do it, it's not very recognizable to him and his playing doesn't say much for him to make him stand out regardless of tone.

How about Buckethead? This should be interesting.

I didnt have anything planned out, and I didn't know **** about improvising, so it was like "OH SHI- SOLO TIME" so I kerry-kinged it.

Way too much high end and brightness for my liking.The endless shredding and similar sound gets kinda old too.
