    These are not necessarily tones I want to play / replicate myself, but I love listening to them..

    Swervedriver - Deep Seat. Adam Franklin & Jimmy Hartridge, blissed out genius. 4.33 always gives me goosebumps.


    Sparta - Glasshouse Tarot, Wiretap Scars is such a great album, and the interplay between the two guitars is great, but on this I love the tone of the right guitar, especially line starting @ 1.03


    Jane's Addiction - Up the Beach. The tone that just sums Dave Navarro up for me, comes in @1.25 then just carries on till the end of the song. Will never tire of hearing this!


    U2 - Wire. Get's me every time, especially when the drums n bass come in and changes the feel of the riff. It's not just the main riff though, just love the sound of all the guitars on this track (whole album really!). And this is a damn tough guitar part to play well IMO.


    Afghan Whigs - Kiss the Floor - Such a simple riff, but it has something magical, that makes me smile.Always


    Primus - Groundhog Day. Larry LaLonde is such an underrated guitarist, and the tone on this track is so sweet.


    Verve - Star Sail - Nick McCabe is another underrated guitarist, was lucky enough to see Verve supporting Smashing Pumpkins in 1993 and my god they were godly. McCabe is probably still to this day the best guitarist i've seen live, in terms of coaxing sound and tone out of his rig.

    The main "Riff tone" in this song

    Every tone in this song (they're kind of strange in some way but I really like them):

    Snarky Puppy - Mark Letteri Solo. I love this cause its so simple. Just a regular Fender Strat and whatever delay he's using. And yet he gets many radically different tones


    Paul Gilbert - Will my Screen Door Stop Neptune. I love his pick technique. Its so crisp. Check out how he controls his overdrive/distortion by just increasing the volume.


    Tina Dickow - New Situation - This song is why I NEED to find the perfect, vintage, Gibson thinline hollowbody w/ P90s. Either that or find something very similar that is made new. I think she plays a Gibson ES-125TC, but she never talks about it. She just plays

    They tend to change but lately I get really inspired by the sounds of these bands.

    Years of rice and salt // beautiful cleanish and edge of breakup tones. Love it.


    Converge // especially the you fail me era stuff. Desperate, agressive and pronounced.


    Rival consoles // no guitars, but the synths on this track make me wish i played keys.

    OK so I finally checked out Sparta because of this song. I kept meaning to get around to it since I'm such a big fan of ATDI and this song is INCREDIBLE. Glad I finally got around to listening to them.
