say I like a guitar tone on a band's album (metalilca's master of puppets)

would it be a cheap and lame to use their guitar tone...in other words, would people instantly think of MoP's guitar tone when they hear it? Or, is this a somewhat common practice?

Orion's instrumental in particular. the tone i'm digging

Like really, guitar tone can make or break a song for me

Mastodon's cover's cover. Totally different feel, really. not as impactful imo

I wouldn't worry about it. Do whatever sounds best and I doubt anyone will care.

wait is that for sure the original guitar tracks of Orion

i've never heard the original song with just guitars. metallica had a facking amazing lead on that track, wow.

Good luck getting the exact tone. Also if you're not playing MoP they probably won't think of it.

Yeah, there are a shitload of variables that went into that tone, and I'm sure they even have trouble replicating it live perfectly.
modes are a social construct

It's a Mesa Mark III multi-tracked thru a ADA MP-1 pre-amp. I think Kirk's lead tone was tailored through a Marshall JCM 800 as well, but its mostly the Mark and the pre-amp.

Yeh. You aren't replicating that tone.
