What effect is he using on this tune?
Definately some kind of delay... PROBABLY the Aqua Puss... Maybe a tape unit. Otherwise, its mainly his kick ass clean tone from his Dumble/Two Rock setup. Couldn't tell you about the overdrive solo tone. Zendrive? TS10? He's been noted for using both lately?
It something different! kinda sounds almost organ like!!
All the 12 year old girls in the audience probably think he wrote that song. Pino Paladino looks more like a chicken every day. I wish I had JM's chops, but I actually like his originals, I wish he'd give up on trying to convince the world that he's a blues guy.
little delay and his normal kickass clean tone with that original 65 strat, solo I would say is either the keeley ts808 or keeley bd2
Lord knows he cannot possibly be playing blues... for himself?
the title of this thread makes me feel weird inside.
I'm a big JM fan, and I think most of his blues stuff is fiiiinnnee.
Although the musicianship of some of his earlier songs were amazing as well.
Original Marshall Blues Breaker??? + Two Rock Sterling Signature or Dumble Steel String Stinger = Kick as Tone!
Plus his tone on this version is WAYYY better!!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ur4bNSDzers
could be this for his solos,as he says below.
Was that Don Cheedle answering the phone?
Interesting cover choice. I like his pop songs.
He actually went into the studio later that night after that performance and cut the track for Continuum. Something about he knew it was finally right and they were ready to put it to tape.
That's what I'm sayin'
after the blues, he's going after the hard rock world!
this is the song I really like!!!!
i love JM, but :NUTS
That IS a great song! If he'd just write songs like that, I'd have a lot more respect for him. He's a great songwriter, he doesn't need to cover Hendrix, et al.
I listen to that one every day.
I agree. He doesn't need to do covers.
If anything I think that just keeps the attention on him. Maybe even get people like us talking about him.
But as it was mentioned, the young listeners might think he wrote it. It would make him look good to them. I think it's a good business move regardless.
So, the OP was asking what effects were used on the song -- not many answers to the question (which I would like to know too) -- but plenty of unwanted opinions on JM, his playing, and the "blues".
seems like you have many other threads focused on bashing JM that your opinion would be welcome in....
My arguement is yes he's put out three great albums full of great originals in the past 7 or 8 years (all at least platnium no less), two DVDs, live albums, now a big song for a movie. He's got all the money and gear and access to phenomenal musicians like Pino and Steve and Eric and Buddy. Let the man have some fun being a guitar hero (as in playing Hendrix and Halen and BB) on stage. He's proven himself. And all the guitar greats of yesteryear have accepted him. What's holding you back?
As far as the tone goes... I stand behind my initial assessment that it is just his killer tone from the Two Rock and Dumble combo. And his fingers.
like him or not, he's doing well and here to stay.
I like a lot of people sat on the fense wondering if he was the real deal or not. I have come to like him, and look forward to what else he may bring to the table.
