I see a lot of threads on guitar tone and records. But I've never seen something like this done before, it was spurred by a conversation that me and some guitar friends where having. What is your favorite recorded note? Or one particular note/chord that strikes you.

For example, we all agreed that the first bend into the Sweet Child O' Mine had a pretty immense impact on us, almost as much as the iconic intro. The first note on Voodoo Child as well...

So do you have any specific notes/chords that are memorable?

the super bend from Judas Priest's Painkiller solo.

This thread is bullshit. One note? **** you.


OT: Right now I'm really digging the three chords (If I have to pick just one, the second one) right before the end of the second break in In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3.

A lot of bends are memorable haha. The Stairway one is great!

The wolf-tone bend at the start of the solo in Circles by Satriani. He doesn't seem to do it in live versions though, only on the album.

I love the first Open E on Yellow Ledbetter from Pearl Jam. It just sounds so...big?

Anything from Red House, Little Wing, Purple Haze, All Along the Watchtower, or Hendrix in general. I'm not his biggest fan, but damn did he sound good.

Bb

End of story. It is the perfect note.


I don't know, I think A# might be better.

Say A#, then play the note and listen.

Now, say Bb, play the note, listen.

Bb is just so much better. Just the name causes it to be godly. Combine that with the note itself, and you've got a weapon of mass destruction.

Calling it A# is fine and all, but it makes it less of an amazing note.

Trust me. I have a degree.

Quote by CoreysMonster
you guys do know that bends technically don't count as single notes, right? >_>

Neither do chords or feedback.
I don't really like this thread, but felt I should contribute anyway.

The first pinch harmonic in the solo in Spirit Carries on, by Dream Theater

The whole solo is boss, but that harmonic gives it a boost

obfuscation by btbam, the rythym guitar part at 38-39s, sounds so good

The harmonic in Hotel California... Can't remember exactly when it is (a phrase in amongst the lyrics IIRC) but it is just the perfect note for the moment.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

I know the one you mean, it's in the second chorus. Awesome note.
