    Post your favourite solo tones.

    Exactly what it says on the tin. Ironically, both of mine are from the same album, just different guitarists I included the 'making of' clips incase none of you guys have listened to the Roadrunner United album.

    My personal favorite.

    Although I tend to like guys who's soloing tone is a bit more "outside" than what normally is going on in that genre. Which is probably also why I like Alex Lifeson's soloing tone during Rush's "keyboard-era". I'm weird like that

    For me?

    Brian May, David Gilmour, Mark Knopfler, Criss Oliva, Tom Scholz.

    I'd look for vids, but you all know these guys, and I should really be doing homework instead
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    Eric Johnson: Venus Isle (also one of my favourite clean tones!).


    Allan Holdsworth: Wardenclyffe Tower (this whole track is glorious!).

    "The greatest power one may possess -- in any situation -- is simply not to care what happens.

    "In fact, it's the only power, all others being a semblance and mockery of it. But you must also not care about possessing the power itself. So fuck it."
