Alright heres my question....


What is your favorite tone from any song or guitarist...

mine is either Red House from Jimi Hendrix or Texas Flood from Stevie Ray Vaughan

and my favorite general tone from any guitarist would be Hendrix just because of innovation and well little wing, voodoo child, all along the watchtower, purple haze, star spangled banner, red house, and machine gun

John Mayer on Waiting on the world to change. Just enough drive, and the perfect combination of smooth bass and cutting treble.

On Paul Rogers' Muddy Waters Tribute CD the song Standing Around Crying, Gilmour's tone was exceptional, probably my #1 favorite. That's the sound I'm always trying for.
Hmmm...I wonder what this button does...

Lots of Satch's tones are cool. I like the solo in 'Why' a lot though. Also lots of Guthrie Govan stuff, he has decent tone taste, and a great wah tone.

Hendrix types of sound
For Love of God tone by Steve Vai, pretty simple tone.
Words to live by: Haters gonna' hate.
#16
Favourite distorted tone would be how Richie's Les Paul sounds on the second (outro) solo in this live performance of 'Always' by Bon Jovi. That second solo is what made me pick up a guitar in the first place, and I've always deemed that tone to be 'what a guitar should sound like'.

Favourite clean would be Eric Clapton's Wonderful Tonight clean (as in the normal studio recording).

Hendrix's sound on Little Wing also deserves a special mention.
#17
I like Slash's solo tone in Sweet Child of Mine, and love the tone in For those about to rock. Holy cow.

Great Tones in order from 1-5:
1: Mike Einziger (especially Morning View Era)
2: Opeth's tone (Blackwater Park ruled tonewise, i love their cleans!)
3: Matt Bellamy (His dirty tone is awesome)
4: The guys from Karnivool (awesome cleans and dirties)
5: Dead Letter Circus/Mammal tie for 5th

A combo of those is my ideal tone!

The first tone I fell in love with was Carlos Santana's, way back in the early 80's. His sound has changed over the years, but my love for his tone hasn't. My #2 would have to be Gilmour's, with a slight preference for his live sound over studio work.

One of those I have always loved is Pete Townshend and his tone on Who's Next is just purely amazing.

Then I think Jimmy Page's tone on Led Zeppelin I and II is wonderful.

Then I love Eric Clapton's tone, but I love his tone on John Mayall & The BluesBreakers with Eric Clapton, IMO his best tone ever.

Then of course SRV, his tone was amazing. And Joe Bonamassa is another one with an awesome tone and I loved his tone on the You & Me record.

I've always loved Keith Richards tone on Sticky Fingers.

Probably my favourite tone would be Weiss Heim Rainbow that is the single most beautiful strat sound i have ever heard i would recommend you guys check that out.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDp7ivsSLWE heres weiss heim, bit quiet but good.

I like Richie Blackmores Tone in general and im into heavy metal so...

No More Tears, Ozzy, the solo makes the hair on the back of my neck sound up.

Mr scary - Dokken, amazing instrumental by Geroge Lynch and the tone is well scary fits the title very well.

Erase the Slate - Dokken, Reb Beach, the solo is incredible on here too love the tone on the solo.

Moto Psycho - Megadeath, i love how the rhythm sounds on this song cant explain it but the rhythm sings out as well as the lead.

just to name a few.
