Smolder, what you choose to play would obviously be different for anyone, but that same artificial, digital thinness in the sound would be present. That's not from his fingers, I hope!
Guys watch the Eric Johnson Gdec video. I'm too lazy to go link it. Phrasing and clean playing are total EJ sig. But it still sounds just like a Gdec.
I hear you budda... I've just seen too many guys kill with crappy equipment... and guys with good stuff stink up the place (from a tonal perspective). Granted... tone is hard to isolate from a jillion other aspects of a performance... and I do take the quest seriously. But if I'm honest with myself... I have to do more than buy the tone... I have to learn to play better.
