You guys know any songs/guitarists that feature/implement a very unique guitar tone that makes you go ?

Robert Fripp's tone in 'Heroes' is very unique (he's the one sitting down).

Allan Holdsworth's tone in general is quite unique, I don't think any other guitarist has a tone like his.

Anybody else got any songs/guitarists with tones that are ?

Allan Holdsworth sucks ass. It sounds like a synth.

Eric Clapton's tone in Cream was pretty unique.

Hey, I didn't say it had to be a good tone, just one that is really unique.

Ye, Eric Clapton's 'woman tone' is pretty awesome, and quite easy to replicate (to an extent).

KEVIN SHIELDS, holy fucking Christ.

Fripp & Belew both make some great sounds. Fripp & Eno's (No Pussyfooting) is a really interesting listen.

Bob Mould.

Oh yeah, he's got some wild fuzz goin' on. Speakin' of wild fuzz, I love the guitar soud on The Jesus & Mary Chain's Psychocandy.

Their most popular song '96 quite bitter beings' reminds me of Helmet.

To be fair, when two-thirds of your gear you made yourself, and the other third was modded for you, you're not exactly going to sound like most people regardless.

Damn, nearly forgot him.

Him and Robert Fripp have similar tones IMO, must be a Les Paul thing.

EDIT: Brian May aswell
I hate him for his other-worldly tone

YOU GET OUT YOUR SHIT OF MY THREAD RIGHT NOW

It's not like his godly tone from back in the day, but it isn't completely terrible.

Tony Iommi. Listen to Supernaut and tell me who else can pull off fuzz like that.

Not about guitars but the music from ice cream vans, nothing else sounds like that. I think they use some music box thing to make it, I need to invest in one and write some songs using it.

Love the dueling crunchy goodness of Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill also. Some fucken scrumptous hard blues tones in their early, core recordings.

Trey Azagthoth's tone is pretty unique, it fits their musical style well. On rhythm it sounds like the guitar is sick and about to vomit.

I think Jack White has been able to get some pretty unique tones from his guitar, especially in seven nation army, it literally sounds like a bass guitar

True, I guess Tom Morello beat him to that one.

Speaking of, I'm not sure of Tom Morello counts. He makes wierd noises, not sure if they class as guitar tones

More than likely it was an octave pedal. It has been a long time since I heard that song though, and I generally don't care for Jack Black/White Stripes.

Radiohead has always done interesting stuff with guitars, especially since the new millennium.

Were the White Stripes a trio at some point?
They/he are/is quite overrated but I could easily listen to most of the stuff he's been on.

Has Brian May been said?

If it hasn't, then I am disappoint.

EDIT: It appears so... but only once.
You are now using UG Black.
You are now using UG Classic.
