    I figured this would be fun. Also a chance to share some bad ass tone. What else for me than this amazing version of red house by Jimi Hendrix. I was listening to some old records my dad has on his record player and heard this killer version... I have been haunted by this tone since I was a kid.
    Whats yours???

    Every note of guitar on "Can't You Hear Me Knocking", whether it's played by Keith or Mick Taylor.

    The sound of Django Reinhardt is the only one.

    One of the unsung heroes of guitar has one of the very sweetest tones ever made. It is simple but tasty, basic but creative, and fits the songs the guy writes perfectly.
    If you want to hear a sample of it find a song called "Lou-Easy-Ann" by J.J. Cale.

    Beat me to it. I listened to every note in the car for the first time in awhile yesterday. Both of them sound just stellar.

    every tone from both guitars on Wishbone Ash's 1987 instrumental album Nouveau Calls produced by William Orbit

    Vogg's lead tone on The Negation by Decapitated, and the sound of his rhythm guitar crunch

    Ed's tone on the new VH album

    Gilmour's "Numb" lead tone, "Another Brick Pt. 2" lead tone

    "Wicked Game", just like everyone else!



    and

    whoever it was who played guitar on Robert Plant's first 2 solo CDs, the ones with "Burning Down One Side", "Slow Dancer", and "In the Mood" for a melody. A whole bunch of super-great tones on those, dontcha think?

    I think it's a bit pointless to be "haunted" by recorded tones because it is a bit of a fool's errand to pine for something where half of the equation is found in the recording methods and mixing. I'm more bedeviled by live tones that I've heard. Rick Holmstrom had one of the greatest live tones I've ever heard. I took a lot of mental notes and I WILL have it!
    -case in point about recorded tones. I guess the one that "haunts" me as much as anything, but that I realize I will never quite get is Elmore James' tone on "My Baby's Gone" & "Find My Kind Of Woman" from the "Fire & Enjoy Sessions". Both were obviously cut at the same session and I'm sure the recording has been slowed down to make everything sound bigger. It is absolutely the penultimate Elmore tone for me, but you just can't replicate slowed tape speed live. You can down tune, but there's a difference.

    Paul Kossoff's Les Paul > Marshall tone has always sat right at the top of my "Most Haunting Tone" list. That elusive woody howling sustain he always gets when he solos (as well demonstrated in these live clips) kills me everytime.
