Ahh guitar tone.. It seems to be a favorite pastime for most guitar players to obsess about how to make their guitars, amps of FX pedals sounds better.
I mean, have you guys seen a guitar magazine lately? They all seem to be nothing more than advertisements for the latest gear.
Everyone is searching for some incredible guitar tone that they hear in their head but just can't seem to ever conjure into real life.
These guitar tone tutorials are meant to help you along with this journey by demonstrating how to get some of the most cherished guitar tones ever created.
I think the more of these guitar tone tutorials you watch the better you will be at designing your own specific guitar sounds.
Studying how some of the greatest guitar tones ever heard were created can be a very inspiring and eye opening experience.
Even if the tone isn't something that you would particularly want to use for your own playing, learning how different combinations of amps and FX affect each other can help you in your own tone searches.
For all of these guitar tone tutorials I will be using an Amp/FX modeler. An Axe-FX II by Fractal Audio to be exact. Using this high quality modeler gives me access to countless amp and FX combinations to create unlimited guitar sounds.
Many players have modelers like this or some combination of pedals and amps that they can use to recreate the guitar tones taught in these video tutorials.
99% of us will never have access to much of the gear that some of the most legendary guitar sounds were created with. But by following along with these lessons I hope you will learn how to get those sounds with a modeler or series of combination of amps or pedals that you already have. 🙂
