Not here to apologize for Joe's comments, but for anyone who thinks that he only plays the same chords and progressions with the same licks, I urge you to check out his playing with Rock Candy Funk Party.
I don’t know what part of that is funny, but....
I just don’t know.
Edit: Oh fuck!! I thought this was the funnies thread.
You’re still supposed to be funny.
I’ll have the Bonamassa on Rye. Hold the Mayo.
It's just an opinion people. He is entitled to it. Imagine if Martin Shkreli said the same thing...
I am not reading thru 17 pages of what is probably some serious butthurt to say only this. I don’t care if you have one chord or 1,000 pedals, it is what you create out of it that matters.
The old 'pedals vs straight through to the amp' debate. Yawn.
I will say that it's a lot easier to get through a gig with no pedals when your touring rig consists of dozens of vintage amps and guitars and you can switch them out at will throughout the night.
You don't need gear to sound good...
...but it might help, a little, maybe ?
People that don't like him will be outraged and use it to throw a jab at him as displayed here. People that do won't really care.
17 pages for someone who said he didn't like pedals, LOL.

Rinse and repeat
C, my ranking in terms of their influence on me=amount listened to-
just listened to Alive yesterday!
4. Take your pick.
Space Ace for the WIN!
Did you just assume our species?
I like pedals, used to enhance rather than drown out.
Seems other like to discuss the subject too.
You less so, your call...
LOL...I thought the title of this thread was:
Joe Bonamassa - Talk Sense...
I just realized there is an S on that "Talk"... Good trick, Nik!
I'm good with my Friedman and some Reissue's. My pedal board is a delay and a wah. Anything else I could think to add to that would be a subtraction from the tone.
No trick intended, Shred...
I actually meant it. I am more inclined to agree with Joe's sentiment than not. Like I said elsewhere, I worked up to a rack, and back down to just a couple of boxes over my 55 years playing. Just a little effectology these days suits me, but I respect pedalists, and I respect pure wirists, so long as they are making music and enjoying the process...
When I started playing I only had an old Sunn Sonic, a wah, fuzz and flanger. I was able to get a close approximation of "Nobody's Fault but Mine". It was only a few years later when I actually got my first guitar that I was able to nail it.
Or was that the other way around ???
And thats the only one I won't listen to. But it doesn't bother me that you do.
i bet it was a bitch to set all that up and then take it down for one photo.
C, I was 11 in 1977. Ace was "it." Many gals with feather hair and no bras strutting, "heads" smoking in the fields. Great time. Ace was the mid-70's.
