"Castles made of sand" comes to mind for me.
How 'bout you? Please share.
Are you talking about the rhthym part? I guess I always thought that was neck &+ middle together.,, Hendrix had his strat wired so that he could blend in the middle pickup.
I always dug The Wind Cries Mary for my personal idea of a killer strat neck pickup sound.
Hey Joe?? Always thought that was neck??
Yes, rhythm part.
I wouldn't doubt that a bit, now that you say it I do hear some in-betweeness in there, good call.
Just looking for examples of great neck pup tones from a strat as I'm in the market for some low output pups (custom wound) and am curious what others think and tunes that I might be overlooking.
Well, mine used to be the solo on "Another Brick in the Wall" 'til someone pointed out to me that Gilmour wasn't using a strat on that (P90s ... in a Lester ... that right?).
So, I'd probably say the following now:
Duke Robillard - Stratisfied
Matt Schofield - Searchin' (Give Me A Sign)/On My Way
So, now someone's gonna chime in and tell me that those weren't strats with the neck pickup selected either
Depending what kind of mood I'm in, it boils down to two very different reference points: "Mary Had a Little Lamb"/SRV or "Rising Force"/YJM. Like I said, very different, but I love 'em equally.
Single Handed Sailor
Blue by Yngwie
Blue Jean Blues
Isn't Blue Jean Blues a '59 LP?
Oh yeah! My two favorite artist's strat tones. One extreme to the other and they both smoke.
Layla is good.
Actually Jimi on Most of Axis and Experiences slower un-fuzzy stuff. Mostly neck I think.
Once stuff is over processed I find that it doesn't matter what guitar.
Example: Fink Ployd It's great but the guitar type doesn't really matter.
Page on a Tele, Dano or Les Paul.
Always thought "lenny" from SRV was the best strat sound demo ever...
You can actually really hear when he s switching from bridge to neck and there s some serious neck pup tones in there ...
Blue Jean Blues as well, I love the song and the sound just as much in lead or rhythm.
A bunch of Hendrix as you all said, I d add "all along the Watchtower" and 51st anniversary.
A live of John Mayer playing "Old Love" also.
love the sound of early buddy guy and ronnie earl
Yellow Ledbetter -- Mike McCready
another brick in the wall part II guitar solo, assuming that's neck.....
That is a goldtop with P-90s!!!
For years, that was my very own "perfect neck PU on a Strat" tone as well.
For me its any of the clean stuff SRV played, gets me every time. I havent really narrowed down one song.
Too many great choices. For me, it would be something by Jimi or SRV.
Curtis Mayfield when he was with the Impressions. Although he used flatwounds.
