Drowning in lap steels
We've all seen the debate: "tone is in your fingers" vs. "tone comes from your gear." I'm curious to see a tally of where your individual sounds come from; what makes you sound like you? This includes the sound of your actual guitar/bass/whatever, and it also includes the way you play. Is it your favorite pickup that identifies you or is it the unique way you use a pick? Do you dime every knob on your amp or do you use 5 pedals in series to create a carefully-constructed ambience?
