Worst tone

wholovesthesun

Blues music is notorious for it's beautiful tone that can express any emotion the guitarist wants to express. Who do you believe has the worst tone out there in the blues genera?

I think that Gary Moore has the worst tone. It's just so horrible that I can't listen to it past the first few notes. (I tried to be unbiased, but I really hate the way he plays.)

i think Gary Moore's cool. hes got really sustainy and a bit gainy tone. i guess blues freaks don't like the gritty Soldano gain. i think Gary Moore's cool. hes got really sustainy and a bit gainy tone. i guess blues freaks don't like the gritty Soldano gain.

im preparing to run the other way but. . . eric clap

not so much his tone as his sheer lack of soul bores the hell out of anyone not too pretentious to admit it. and really when talking blues, for me atleast, the actual sound of the guitar itself comes second to the emotions expressed in the playing.

I'm not a big fan of the almost broken up tones that some people use. If your gonna have breakup then have it otherwise keep the sound clean. that could just be me though.

Eric had great Gibson and Clean Fender tone, but now he's distorting a Strat like you'd distort a Gibson. There is to good to this. He is great on the acoustic, but his tones in the earlier days were better. I full tilt agree with you. I wish he would start using gibsons again :(
