Hey I was wondering, what all determines the sound a guitar makes? I've been trying to play some songs I like, and I was wondering if I just have to tune the guitar to the right tone for it to sound like the song or if you purchase some kind of special effect device for your guitar. I have my amp set just fine, so I guess the only thing left is to tune my guitar correctly? like in drop d or whatever

I'm talking about more simple things like, tuning the guitar correctly? or having a device that tweaks your guitar sound, like to make it more twangier.

Depends on the song. If it's other then standard tuning then yeah, you gotta set your guitar up to the proper tuning or it's never going to sound right. As far as changing tone your pretty dependent on your equipment. The more effects you have the better your chance of dialing in the sound you want. Your going to need to do some research to see what's used on a particular song or if you have an effects amp you can experiment. Get a cheap multi-effects pedal if you don't have anything else. play with it until you figure out what your doing and what you want then upgrade to a better one later.

wtf kind of response is that? ****ing idiot, go waste your time.

If that was aimed at me, Let me tell you that your fingers make up most of your tone. Improve your technique and that will get you closer. Fingers and playing style give you twang, not effects or tunings.
