I was told to direct this thread here. Would someone help me find sound examples of these concepts I've found in music books?

"muddy"
"fullness"
"hollowness"
"muddy"
"honky"
"presence"
"sparkle"
...many many more I don't remember but maybe you can think of

Some are related to EQ, some to the consequences of poor panning, and so on. I do understand at least to some extent what they mean but I don't fully grasp them, I can't abstract them when I hear a song.

An explanation just won't do, I need sound examples I can keep and playback from time to time as I learn to make the process more didactic.

Thanks a lot in advance, ultimate-guitar forum is great!

Hmm...Well, I don't really understand all of those terms too much, either.


"muddy" - Mushy? Not too sure how to explain this one. Try raise only your bass knob to 10 and everything else to 5.
"fullness" - Thick toned

Sorry. I'll be more helpful

All of these terms are pretty subjective, so it's hard to find definitive clips for you to use.

Andy Timmons generally has a very full tone. This is the nearest example I could find of his studio tone.

I know the terms are subjective, but clearly they can be abstracted much...as people can tell the difference between a clean and a distorted guitar, though some clean guitars have more reverb and chorus than others.

Perhaps two examples would be better, one with the effect and one without it.
