  • If you could copy one guitar tone...

    ...who would it be, and what style of music do you play (for reference)?

    I'm thinking Trey, actually. Maybe because I'm still just a week distant from a great Phish show. But I love that high-gain, lots of mid tone.

    Steve Vai's encyclopdia of tones. I guess no specific one, but just his ability to produce such elegant, exotic sounds with his guitar.
    My weapons of choice:

    -Eastwood Joey Leone Signature RBC
    -Washburn AG20CE Acoustic-Electric
    -Line 6 Flextone III Plus

    Those that inspired me and continue to motivate me to play everyday:

    Jeff Healey, Shinedown, Steve Vai, Doug Aldrich, Paul Gilbert, Andy Timmons, Zakk Wylde

                    Pete Townshend from Live at Leeds.

                    Also, even though it's kinda cliche to mention a Hendrix tone, I think the tone on the Woodstock version of Spanish Castle Magic is killer. The whole set sounds good, but that song especially.

                          With all the Multi-FX and synthesizer units out there, we can all copy tone. And please don't tell me you can tell the difference because you can't. There are simply too many variables to cover, like the size and materials of a structure and even crowd size which will change the tone to the audience. Perhaps if you are using very good quality headphones. Even then, there would be few who could tell the difference everytime with every song.

                            I remember a few months back, a guy posted a recording of a Zeppelin cover using (I think) the Axe-FX. He got the guitar tones to sound nearly identical to the original recordings... so I guess I'd have to agree with you.
