    This album is incredible and black star is amazing in my opinion because he’s not just blazing the whole time, you can clearly hear his tone and note choices. I hate to say it but I can’t think of many of his instrumentals that top this and “far beyond the Sun.”

    I have to go with a particular Hendrix song. Like a Rolling Stone live at Monterey. I still listen to this weekly. The control of the tone is mind blowing, clean soft to fuzzy goodness.

    Well, I was gonna, just as soon as I finished reading the thread. In The Gallery makes my blood run. He'll always be the one that awakened me as a player.

    Ritchie Blackmore on Maybe I'm a Leo and Pictures of Home of Machine Head album. Not so distorted.

    Burning of the Midnight Lamp by Jimi Hendrix was the Strat tone that always gave me a boner.

    Les Pauls used to be my guitar of choice but after hearing the bellow video I started to take interest in some strat players. Ever since I have been a strat guy.

    Check out some Dan Patlansky - not the earliest stuff though - too SRV-like
    Can't believe John Mayer hasn't had a mention but guess it's an obvious one.
    SRV - Voodoo Child, Little Wing plus lots more..
    Chris Buck
    Joe Bonamassa tone on Lazy is stunning too...
    This thread could run and run....

    Hey Joe with Jimi Hendrix, and most of his songs, also SRV for his complete work and David Gilmour, mostly for the dark side of the moon... I'm old !!!

    Blackmore's tone pretty much right throughout the 70's...

    Gibson and Vox? Yeah brilliant tone.

    Fender and Marshall? Yeah brilliant tone.

    Studio and live? Yeah brilliant tone.


    Made In Japan has tone to die for.

    Oh and playing to die for. And a rhythm section to die for. And keys to die for. And vocals to die for.

    Oh and the music is awesome too. And there's no overdubbing... just musical conversations.


    All that tone intertwined with Jon Lord's Hammond and underlined by Ian Paice's drums. Heaven.

    I have no idea who they are. They have 3 covers on youtube and this is the only one I like to be honest.

    Jeff Beck, David Gilmore, and Stevie Ray Vaughan are some of my favorites for Strat tone. I love Gary Moore as well, though he mostly played Les Pauls. I also love that Red House version.
