Title: More Shred and Tumble
Post by: Anonden on November 24, 2016, 05:19:59 am
Not in the popular sense of shredder playing, but timbrally. And then some measured perambulation.

It comes to mind that many here might, and indeed many common folk do, not know how messy sounding the average even somewhat gain-y guitar sound is, and that most if not all of it is covered up by the other instruments in the typical mix. Think sand on steel. My attempts with developing the timbre are possibly the clearest in existence per level of gain - and even compared to much lower gain tones, with regard to fizziness. (I do not say distortion. Though that is what happens to the signal, use of the name for the timbral phenomenon has at least become unsuitable, for its meaning is based in the idea of dirtiness - even by the guitarist. Which is not me.)

(Note, I'd love to embed, if I only knew how.....)

It's not something I lose sleep over, frankly.

Shredders are very useful things, especially to composers accustomed to maintaining due self-criticism; I wouldn't be without mine, that's for sure!

Much the same could be said (at least by those who still persist in using those antediluvian tools commonly known as pen, ink and paper) for correction fluid which I've always regretted is not sold in 500cl containers (Sir Michael Tippex, as I used to call it).
