Ah the age old debate.. Is tone really in the fingers? From the grip of the neck to the pluck of a string. This debate has been heard time and time again. Of course the gear has to play a part too, right? I have been told that a 51 Nocaster is magical and a 59 burst is godly and if the right Marshall Plexi gets cranked to 11 then “ultimate tone” is achieved.
But where does most guitar tone come from? Does the gear really make all the difference? Can you get heavy metal tones out of an acoustic? Why is this subject even a debate? Should you focus more on gear or technique? Where does this stem from? And if tone is in the fingers then how does a robot play a guitar?
Well we will discuss this, and more on this group therapy session with Chris, on the Tweed Couch.--- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/tweedcouch/support
