wtf r u say make no sensical

BucketHead is really cool (soothsayer wahs phrasings are awesome).

Tom Morello is a bit high on effects but is still able to play with passion.
Yeah Herman Ri knows what to do with effects,
It's not really my style, but he is good with them.

bellamy and morello ftw
Studies have shown that 92% of guitar players are close-minded. Copy this into your signature if you're part of the 8% who enjoy rap.

Oh yeah, and if guitar hero got you into the guitar? you're really playing for the wrong reasons.

there is no wrong reason to play a guitar, except for world enslavement and extermination of certain races, but those guys never make it big anyway.
David Gilmour

he never has a straight clean tone he always uses effects
but he is good at setting up his sounds

EDIT: Also i think Kurt Cobain was good at using effects
Fender MIA Strat w/EMG SA's
Fender Super 60
Boss RT-20 Rotary Sim

Unless by "cum blood" you mean
In which case, yes, I do cum blood.

Bellamy, Morello, Johnny Greenwood.

The first three from the top of my head.
I'd have to say Johnny Greenwood is the best effects user.
morello and how bout the effects that EVH uses

also can't forget about the guy who brought the use of effects to the forefront: Jimi Hendrix
Oh and i forgot Steve Vai.. as did i think everybody on here did...

"Audience is Listening" anybody? Tender Surrender?
I think Mike Einziger is pretty innovative with his pedals, also I agree with those that have said Buckethead, he uses effects well.

nothing special in tender surrender, the only part that stands out in that piece is when he transitions his distortion into clean somehow...

"Somehow..." being the keyword :P
Love the effects in Soothsayer so yeah Buckethead is good. Jonny Greenwood, Adam Jones, Matt Bellamy are all good.......
Tom Morello, Matt Bellamy, Adam Jones, Buckethead, Omar Rodriguex-Lopez, John Frusciante, Justin Chancellor, Mike Einziger and Kim Thayil.
tim reynolds for sure. he the master of the delay and volume pedals, and makes sounds i never even thought possible with just those two pedals and an acoustic guitar. check out "live at radio city" with dave matthews and tim reynolds
Gibson Les Paul Studio
Fender MIM strat with dimarzio pups
Egnater Rebel 30
Takamine Acoustic
tons of pedals
I'd agree with Johnny Greenwood and Morello and all those. But I really love the effect John Frusciante uses on the outro for Throw Away Your Television.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.
