I was wondering, one, what kind of guitar does the guy from Muse play and also if anyone knew how to get his tone, because it is pretty unique. I have a fuzz box and can get something very similar but I was wondering if anyone knew exactly how to dial it in.

his tone is unique because his guitar is unique, its custom made, and the inside has microchips etc in for special effects

He uses Manson guitars primarily. They give you a bunch of needless and cool features that cost you your home of one katrillion record sales. Good luck.

It's not right that such a poor guitarist can afford so many things, while I sit here with an AD30VT. It's just wrong.

Heh. Don't you all love how on the muse absolution tour DVD some american dude steals Matt's guitar. Well, not steal. See, matt always destroys his guitar at the end of a gig, but at this particular gig, the guitar had the honour of just being lobbed in a skip outside. Some dude saw it and took it out and ran off with it .

Quit your whining bitch, Bellamy is a great guitarist and very inspired and talented musician. He also happened to be doing the right thing at the right time in the right place, and thus he's now a famous musician.

Dude, he's an awesome guitarist. He's got more ideas going than most other modern guitarists and unlike most of them can actually write a decent tune.

The funny thing is that he can actually shred. But the difference is he has this thing that shredders lack called taste.

To say that all shredders have no taste is wrong but i understand your point. It does irritate me that a lot of the people on this forum are under the impression that if someone doesn't or can't shred and yet is rich/famous/has better equipment doesn't deserve it because they're 'obviously' rubbish.

Matt Bellamy is the man who made me want to play guitar. It's shredding that put me off starting in the first place!

I believe that close to two years ago I purchased 'Absolution'. My sense of time is awful, though. In any case, I liked the album a little bit. It was kind of catchy. I also liked 'Plug In Baby'. However, that doesn't mean that Matt is a good guitarist - let alone a great one. It's great that he hits all the notes he wants and stuff, but his riffs are in fact most often just as tasteless as the shredders you all know and hate. To be honest, I don't listen to a lot of what you'd consider shred. Obviously, this means that you were jumping to conclusions and putting me in the same class as the people who that mockery would have been at least partially relevant to. In any case, he's not a great guitarist. He plays and he hits the notes he wants, but his riffs are tiresome and untasteful. Prove me wrong. And at least provide some evidence.

Most modern 'guitarists' aren't really worth a damn. That is to say, neither is Matt. Decent is the most he can put out as a collective album at this juncture.

Steve Vai (Real Illusions : Reflections)
Joe Satriani (Strange Beatiful Music)
John Petrucci (Suspended Animation
Vinnie Moore (Meltdown)
Paul Gilbert (Alligator Farm)
Buckethead (Electric Tears)
Eric Johnson (Ah Via Musicom)
Bumblefoot (9.11)
Al DiMeola (Casino)

I'm tempted to go on, but I might ramble. Those guys alone have more taste than anything that Muse has ever put out. Saying otherwise is just you trying to avoid having to admit your wrong.

By the way - I want to see a video of him shredding. I'd really love to.

As far as I am concerned, the inverted commas you put around the word guitarists destroys any claim you had to be making accurate or impartial comments on music, modern or otherwise. What the hell gives you the right to dictate whether or not someone is a guitarist? They're a guitarist if they play guitar, end off discussion. Your arrogance is pretty astounding.

I apologise for prematurely and mistakenly denouncing you as someone who thought guitarists were only worth a damn if they could shred, but you have to admit that is the case with a high number of people on this site.

Since you couldn't spell 'apologize', I don't think your in much of a position to be insulting my grammar. People are suprised by my arrogance all the time. Also, I was figuratively speaking when I said who's a guitarist and who isn't. I'd say that your English classes made you way too literal and intense, but you couldn't spell apologize. So I'm just assuming you're another tightwad.

Apology accepted, by the way. I agree with you on that last part.

P.S. - I'm sure that by inverted commas you meant apostophes. Thanks for your help, though. I always love it when someone makes two mistakes while trying to correct one of mine.

I do. That's what I'm striving for, however distant it may seem at this juncture. My mental.. features make it a little hard. I've gotten better, though. Two years ago, I'd of just given you a '**** you'.

Well, there's your mistake. Absolution is their poorest album.

Matt Bellamy is one of the few truly innovative guitarists around today. He's fantastic.

I'm British, dude. In British English (as opposed to American English) words with the suffix "sise" (summarise, customise, etc) Are spelt with an 's' rather than a 'z'. That's a spelling reform that was brought in in the US at the same time as the letter "u" was dropped from words like "colour" and "armour". Furthermore, 'these' are definitely inverted commas in Britain, although I don't know about the US. In England, an apostrope refers to the identical punctuation mark used in contractions like "can't". Just one of them silly little things.

And you weren't figuratively speaking, you were figuratively punctuating

I think both of our grammatical attacks were nullified by our different countries. My apologies.

Actually, if you aren't american then it is spelled apologise and they are called inverted commas. An apostrophe is used to denote ownership, e.g. "That is Dave's guitar" or to replace a letter in an abbreviation, for example "aren't" or "don't" whereas an inverted comma is what you used
