Your playing style and favorite tones

For ****s and giggles.....I'm curious to know what kind of players are on the forum and thier favorite players' tones.

I'll start off. To keep it managable list only 4 favs.

I'm a hard rock/metal player.

My Favorite players/tone and album

1. Michael Schenker- first two solo albums

2. Randy Rhoads- Blizzard of Oz....great tone on that one.

3. George Lynch - debut album Lynch Mob and 2nd one Wicked Sensation... totally kick ass.

4. Akira Takasaki from Loudness- Thunder in the East....awesome metal tone.

Next person please

Re: Your playing style and favorite tones

My style! my tone! my style rooted in the blues, r&b and acid rock, blue grass other weird off the cuff stuff. All blended together in my head fueling my imagination. fav. Tones....? too many great players out there through out the decades to say. Funny though most of the ones that come to mind are unknown guys I have either played with or use to go see in the local Toronto music scene.

Re: Your playing style and favorite tones

I'm a hardrock/shredder type. I prefer low output pickups, like an AlNiCo 2 magnet. That way you can get a great clean tone, and your dirty tone isn't 'over the top'. Lets the wood in the guitar breathe a little better, to me anyway.

I'm not a massive tone 'snob' but I know what I like, and what seems to work with my hands and my amps.

Some of my favorite tones...

Jimmy Page
Slash
Angus Young
Mike Auldridge
Joe Walsh
Eric Johnson
Ritchie Blackmore
Brian May
B.B. Kind
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Neil Young
Santana

Jeez... I could probably go on, but you get the idea.

I'm mostly a hard rock guy. The main influence is Ritchie Blackmore. The Les Paul tone I really like is Paul Kossoff and Peter Green.

I also have a heavy Blackmore influence, also Leslie West,
early Clapton(Cream), early Page, old Jeff Beck, Hendrix
Paul Kossof. I listen to alot more than
them but since they were my High School heros they have
left a lifetime influence on me.

Re: Your playing style and favorite tones

My Playing style is Blues, and blues based rock, southern and classic rock, along with a few other things, the list of my playing influences can go days and not be complete Suffice to say everything Between Duane Allman, Albert King to, Frank Zappa and ZZ Top
I love clean tones and I love dirty nasty distorted tones, dry and lush with a natural sounding verb Veriety is spice and I like spice, well used and disbursed sweetly and as evenly as I can

Re: Your playing style and favorite tones

Classic Rock, Blues - my tastes lean more to early electric blues though.

- Mike Bloomfield - with Butterfield and Electric Flag. 'Texas' is still one of my favorite tunes
- Peter Green - Jumpin at Shadows kills me
- Clapton - Mayall and Cream years
- Mick Taylor - Mayall and Stones years
- Page with Zepplin - amazing, just amazing
- Slash - floors me that he can be so melodic

Re: Your playing style and favorite tones

The tone I enjoy is pretty much the basic marshall. I have a jmc 2000 tsl 100, it has two crunch channels classic and more modern. I run the modern with my boss chorus. It is pretty close to Zakk Wylde. I am a pretty basic player kinda a FREHLEY/HENDRIX, always trying new things to get better. Influnces would be ACE, C.C. DeVille, Zakk, Really starting to enjoy TREMONTTI very under rated.

Re: Your playing style and favorite tones

hmmm i like to consider my style as a fast pass heavy metal/metal
i love the emgs as i really only want heavy sounds and not really a clean sound, and yet i can still get good solid clean tone from them. that helps when im playing master of puppets infront of 400 hundred people :P

im a zakk,james,kirk,randy person!

Re: Your playing style and favorite tones

Acoustic it would be the tones of a Sobell Model 1 or 3 played in a Michael Hedges style.

Electric, a Les Paul through whatever it takes to sound like Santana on the Moonflower album. Sheer bliss!

But I have that chicken pickin' out of phase pickup sound happening too with my strat. Then I'm only dreaming of Danny Gatton ( Though he was a Tele guy )!
Danny Gatton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Then people tell me I sound like David Gilmour when I play. Now, I've listened to him forever, but have never played any electric Floyd, just Wish You Were Here on acoustics. So I never consciously ape him, but I guess it comes through on some level. That's not a bad complement I guess.

yep, i have that one as well as Soldier of Fortune and a few others. I saw them at the Bayou in Washington DC during the Thunder tour (80s) and i recently saw them a year a two ago at Jaxx in Springfield VA. ...almost 20 years later It was a sold out show. I think during the 90s they got a lot heavier like Pantera from what i heard. All their releases were imports and expensive. From what I heard, they have a new album coming out soon. Totally crushing metal tone...i love it!!!!

I'm sure you remember this one

YouTube - Loudness - Crazy Night

Re: Your playing style and favorite tones

I'm a sucker for big fat LP tone and wanted to toss out some people not mentioned:

Greg Martin (Kentucky Headhunters, Mightly Jeremiahs, Rufus Huff)
Lee Roy Parnell (typically thought of as a country guy...not)
Phil Keaggy (Christian rock guy, but...check out "Jammed.")

I would also put huge votes in for some already mentioned--Freddie King, Paul Kossoff (check out all the versions of BBC sessions "Be My Friend") and Mick Taylor...cool stuff!

Re: Your playing style and favorite tones

Favourite music: 70`s rock/metal, but anything pentatonic blues-based stuff works on me.

Jimi Hendrix (Fillmore east & Winterland concert,and the lead of "Isabella" Woodstock69,Monterey..No wait!..Anything Hendrix sounds cool,Definitely the biggest and the most important,most influential of them all,blues-playing extremist and a pioneer

Robin Trower -Bridge of sigh-album-1974 ,coolest strat-tone I`ve heard,especially the lead-part on "A little bit of sympathy",also "Fool & me","Day of the eagle","Bridge of sigh",AWESOME tone
keyword: Strat,Marshall,Vibe/wah-wah,Still on records today,Robin delivers awesome guitar-sounds & tone I`ll guess Jimi would loved to hear.

Johnny Winter -Rock`n roll hoochie koo,awesome warm & creamy bridge-tone on this song,but could name ALOT more tracks,Him and Jimi,are the two wildest blues-men I`ve heard on records.(Stevie Ray joined a little later)

John "Gypie" Mayo -(Dr Feelgood 1977-1982) ,Gibbo`s or strats? This dude sounded awesome live anyway,Just particulary listen to his funky,snappy Hendrixian-marshall/strat-tones on some of their live albums (BBC-in concerts,etc)..Really aint got a clue why fans (still today) are screaming for getting Wilco back,when they had a top-notch player like Mayo.

Del Bromham (Stray) -on "Saturday morning pictures"-1972(strat/overdriven marshal/wah/phaser) ,awesome stratocaster-70`s-hardrock tone,Awesome blues-prog-rock-record,and a really ignored/underated guitarist.."like a british Johnny Winter" even Noel Redding (The Experience) wanted/planned to play with him. I personally rate this record as one of the best rock albums ever been made!
Mick Taylor & Keith Richards (on get your ya ya`sout 1969,Epic record)
SRV- "Couldn`t stand the weather"-1984, (I refuse to play with bass-strings to "getting closer" his huge tone,like for example 0,12 & 0,13 gauges)
David Gilmour - The Wall-1979,epic strat-sound on a epic record!

Billy Gibbons - (ZZ-top) Eliminator- 1983 - like a girl in my class at the time said:"Oh my god,finally a heavy metal-tune that I can move my body around to"

Tony Iommi- (Black Sabbath) - live California Raceway - 1974,Awesome fat,fuzzy & "haunting" SG-tone on the live-record,sounded to my ears like Hendrix played Tony`s equipment!

Tony Bourge - (of Budgie) - Squawk-1971,Never turn your back to a friend-1972,Sure really aint easy to nail THAT fat,huge Gibson/SG/ES345-Marshall tone,The Black Sabbath`s got rich & famous,They didn`t, strongly underated ,a pioneering metal-rock-band !

Zakk Wylde - (Ozzy) No rest for the wicked-1988 & No more tears- 1991 = The heaviest vibratos ever
Mick Ronson - (David Bowie) "The man who sold the world"-1971 & "Ziggy Stardust & the spiders from Mars - 1972
Duane Allman- (Allman Brothers) - "trouble no more,Black hearted woman,Dont keep me wonderin`",Fillmore east,lot`s of fat&varm LP-tones by fingers or slide.

Brian May - (Queen)"Mr perfection" and technical on lot`s of stuff,usually smooth,cool sounding & 100% controlled!
Paul Kossoff -(Free) every LP-playing guitarist gotta heard about his tone,even Bonamassa tries to replicate it through his LP Customshop,It is said that Angus Young was really inspired by his vibratos & solos (with huge feels)

Status Quo - Roll over lay down on Hello-1973 - Yep,that`s the king of boogierock tone
Allen Collins (Lynyrd Skynyrd) ,This man was influential enough for lead & rythm!
Eric Clapton -(Cream) - He`s never sounded better than with a Gibson and a cranked Marshall, but at least he`s got a better haircut today!

John Lennon & George Harrison - Do Vox rocks? Yep..Check! Rubber Soul & Revolver,Aah,Those were the days..I wish I was born earlier ! (also especially loved John`s warm,fat,punchy,but yet mild and creamy tone on rythm & lead-part on Get back)

Alvin Lee - (Ten Years after) - Plenty of raspy & ballsy ES-335-tone
Leslie West & Mountain - A very sane reason to run to a store to grab a LP Jr.
(Leslie had some serious badass-tone,check up on youtube "southbound train" at woodstock69)

Dave Murray - When he hits the toogle-switch to neck position,You know who`s the fastest pentatonic blues-player around.
Ace Frehley - lot`s of distorted,fat,warm and gritty LP-tones,I`m pretty sure many started to learn&play guitar thanx to him,One of them was Diamond Darrel.

Malcolm Young - I love his chrunchy 70`s-RnR-rythm-tone
Pete Townsend (The Who) - "My generation"..I love that lead-part & the SG-tone on "My generation"-Woodstock 69 concert !
Dave Navarro - unique style & innovative rock/blues-player,mostly Paul Reed Smith & Les Pauls in his hands
John Frusciante - He could get some serious jaw-dropping strat-tone

Fernando Von Arb (Krokus) Swiss group,radio-friendly,80`s hair-spray-metal,he had several custom-buildt Hamer`s,sounds by now funny for some readers,but Fernando had some serious badass fast bluesshredding pentatonic leads,divebombs,whammy-abuse.I Still even today in a retro-mood find this guy still facinating listening too.

Manny Charlton (Nazareth) ,seems like Manny never got any musical attention afterwards,but to me a very versatile playing guitarist with a chuncky,punchy and gritty "Black Beauty"-tone.

Eddie "Fast Eddie" Clarke (Motorhead 1978-1982)..Now why the heck would someone put a Dimarzio Superdistortion in the bridge of a nice vintage twangy kind of guitar, like a stratocaster?..He`s was a cool reason !
