    I know that there are many tastes and flavours of the D-tone (smooth, strainy, fordish, carltonish, srv-y, santanish, mayerish, etc...). On top of that everyone has their own idea and recollection of what it may be.
    This is as close as I get to my idea of a D-tone. (especially after 01:16 when I switch to the bridge pickup).

    My D-tone take

    Hope you like it. Thanks to Mats for the backing.

    Nice.Sounds a little like Lowell's tone with less definition.That might be because of the 'buckers...

    Very cool tone, i bit to mushy for my taste on the neck pickup but then i NEVER use a neck HB with OD, the bridge pup sounds VERY good.
    BtW which nermark backing is this, sounds like great fun to play over :dude

    Anders,

    I agree with you about the muddy neck pickup, but, I am told, thats what Les Pauls are supposed to sound like! :)

    In all honesty, its difficult to get the right balance with these Burstbucker pickups. In order not to have a piercing bridge, the neck gets a bit muddy. However, it only happens on the lower notes. Around 01:05, I hit the higher notes and the treble comes back.

    The backing is the last one Mats posted. Try scrolling a few pages...

    thanks. Marin

    Hi Anders,

    The track is called Fat Tuesday (Fettisdag och semlor :D )and you will find it at BT King in the Jazzrock section second from the top.

    Enjoy!

    Nice Marin. I always dig your clips. This is no exception. You're a great player with a keen sense of tone.

    ^^This^^

    Great clip. I am getting a Les Paul next week. I haven't owned one for well over fifteen years. I can't wait to play it through my rig.

    The amp is a Ceriatone.

    Cool, I dug the playing.. nice !!!!

    Sounds like a Les Paul to me .I heard some of that signature throatiness.

    You need a video camera that keeps up with your picking hand!

    How did you get such good quality audio/video ?

    Did you bypass the camera mic preamp w/something else ?
