Classic Rock, Soul, R&B, Country, you name it.
I play both kinds: heavy and metal
Some of my favourite heavy rythm tones comes from my Les Paul panned hard to one side and my Tele hard to the other.
That’s what this is:
Whatever you want.
Honky tonk chikin' pickin' country, blues, rockabilly, R&R.
For surf I use my '72 Strat, or '65 Mosrite.
Any kind of music. No electric guitar should be stereotyped.
Rock, pop, funk.
Anthrax, Testament, Slayer, Megadeath and Metallica.
Not many people know this but they all made a pact together to record all of their studio albums on Teles. Scott Ian, Kerry King, Eric Peterson, Dave Mustaine and Kirk Hammett were all huge Country fans and you can hear those influences in their writing and playing styles.
KK may well be seen on stage with a BC Rich or Jackson V but don't be fooled. He would warm up before every show on his Tele and then his guitar tech would play along on it during the actual show backstage in order to give the overall mix some of the twang that he wanted. This caught on in the mid 80s and then all the early thrash bands started doing it....
PS There was a video somewhere on YouTube of an early 90s festival performance by Metallica where Hammett does an extended chick'n pickin' wah wah solo with a little butterscotch blonde beauty. That guitar had some history as it had been in the trunk of his car and completely wrote off a pickup truck that ran in to the back of him. The insurance firm wouldn't pay up because they said the policy didn't cover the Tele being in there.
Bad music... Actually it does not matter what kind of Guitar it is, anything I play just comes out bad!
Ambient, jazz, rock, and metal.
And I just got my first tele about a week and a half ago.
The more you play the better you will get!
Beautious tones, OP.
Funk, RnB, Rock, Blooze here.
garage country rock
All of it.
I normally sway towards the garagey kinda punk rock stuff, but anything and everything is right at home on a tele.
Depends on the kind of amp I'm plugged into, seriously Teles can do anything.
Funk or Jeff Buckley type music I tend to enjoy chords and bending notes in chords on a Tele.
Blues Rock. More specifically it is my "Black Keys" guitar. Spends some time in Open G.
My Tstyle has humbuckers and a chambered body. I've used it for rock, jazz, worship and fingerstyle latin/jazz gigs! Tone is in the hands!!!!
