Yeah, but they still played a lot of straight blues, with no effects, or at least not engaged.
I dig playing straight in. I have a Strat/LP>2204/tweed. Duh. Straight in is magic.
Pedals are just “more” magic.
Will we ever be past this?
If I can’t have a corner piece, may I please at least have her eyes?
If you eat the eyes, you shatter the windows and they’re forever trapped inside.
That’s in the Bible.
What then would we argue about? It's not like we disagree on anything else here?!?!?!
I’ve got that flanger!!
Surprised to see it on a pro board. It’s good, but I always figured touring guys would have something a little further up the scale.
You forgot the IMHO. Not everyone shares your opinion, thank gawd.
Unleash that fury.
I don't use any pedals and I suck. So there.
I really think he is talking about people who use them to hide behind.....posers. People that use them as the main ingredient rather than the seasoning. In that case, he has a point.
Says the guy who calls acoustic guitars "Kryptonite," because taking away the cord and the amp robs him of his superpowers.
so many angles I could spin the joke,..yet,..just the picture works too.
Never say never about pedals and FX -- or anything else. Joe plays with a sound man at large venues with good acoustics, and he is only expressing his opinion about what he does. Those of us who usually play in small venues with poor acoustics and no sound man may need to use some pedals and FX to cure the "dead room" syndrome. While I agree with Joe that too many pedals and FX in a chain, all turned on, can often "squish" the tone. But all any of us (including Joe) can say with any authority is what works for us, and where, what, and how we play.
But I have no band
And yet, he is allegedly friends with Eric Johnson
I'm not going to rank on Bonamassa; for one, I'm not that familiar with his music (just not my style is all) and, for two, the dude can play - and a helluva lot better than I can. That said...
Anyone remember that troll we had years ago who went by the handle "Joe Bonermaster?" He had some pretty funny moments but eventually got perma banned. His name name cracked me up though and he had this whacked out avatar of some old naked guy with long hair and a long beard who looked like Gandalf holding a Les Paul.
Okay, that really has nothing to do with this thread but it did remind me of that guy and I chuckled a bit.
I agree, not criticism of Joe! He is merely expressing an opinion of how HE likes to play. And, come to think about it, that's what we all do here!
eh, like they say "What you eat don't make me sh*t." there is an obvious hypocrisy about what he is saying... "yeah I used to use pedals but times are different now, you should realize that if you use pedals you aren't actually playing guitar."
jimmy page used pedals, eric clapton used pedals, jimi hendrix used pedals, david gilmour used pedals...
I get what he was saying but he just went on a poetic rant. not everything has to be in its simplest form to be something great.
And it's also a damn fine sounding wah...lol
I don’t care what Joe thinks ( I bet he doesn’t care what I think either)...
I think guitar playing can always evolve, and be used in any way the user deems fit. Joe is free to carry the blues rock wank torch as long as he wants, and I’m free to play whatever the fuck I want with whatever effects I want, and the world will keep turning... And as a little spiteful jab at Joe, I’ll say that until he plays the blues as well as Robert Cray, he’s wasting his time
