The Quest For Good Tone
Good tone. We want it! We talk about it and we are searching for it...and some may have found it! But how can we define it? Are we all talking about the same thing?
Tone is also a matter of taste of course. It is like cars. Some like a Porsche others are into Corvette. But they are good cars!
So how about good tone? It is a very difficult question! It is everything a guitarist puts into his (or her) sound! That means guitar amplifier, effects pedals, electric guitar, the use of fingers, emotion........everything!!
That is why you sound different on the same guitar and amp then someone else! You are a unique player and your playing technique influences your tone a lot!!
