This is an impossible question for me as I've got lots of favourites in different styles etc.
But here's 5 in each category I really like a lot, in no particular order!

Lead tones:

Gary Moore
Eddie Van Halen
Joe Satriani
Mark Knopfler
David Gilmour


Rythm/Riff tones:

Mark Knopfler
Dimebag
James Hetfield
Alex Scolnic
Billy Corgan

Great thread steve25!
I’m of course very happy to see that my name is mentioned a couple of times here! smile.gif

What I’d like to add to this topic is that there are lots of things that affects the tone. We tend to focus on the gear; amps, pedals, strings, pick-ups, wood, etc etc… and yes, those things are important. But most important (in my opinion) is your fingers. A big part of the tone comes from your fingers.

>Also the tone in final wars where the first lead part comes in.

>Mark Knopfler - Enough said.

EDIT:
>A few others I must add that haven't been mentioned much or yet are Hendrix - who could forget the man who practically started modern day guitar sounds and techniques etc. Yngwie Malmsteen - Flawless, all that needs to be said. John Frusciante - Hendrix inspired him in so many ways, even most of his guitar sounds, amazing guitarist as well! Of course John Petrucci. And one more for now...John 5 - like Buckethead he has many different sounds, very experimental and plays many different styles which results in lots of different tones, and they are good ones also


I love Hendrix, but thats why I mentioned Frusciante. I think he's the sucessor to Hendrix today. And his tone is better, if only because we have more control over our gear now biggrin.gif If I had to list all the people who experimented and gave us new ideas for today, my list would be wayyyyy too long so instead I listed those who learned the best from them, or who have just established unsurpassed tones of their own. smile.gif

Did anyone mention Clapton............I like him a lot and notice he does not get a lot of mention around here. Do people not like EC?


I love Clapton! But I don't see a lot thats special about his tone. Clapton has always been about the playing to me. He does get really nice tone, especially recently, but his tone pretty much stays where it is all the time.

Definitely! I've noticed that playing the same guitar, song, amp, and effects as my friend. Just little differences in the techniques we do variate the sound a great deal.

+1000 wink.gif I have seen people entering a music store, complaining that they don't sound like James Hetfield, even though they bought "his" guitar and "his" amp in that shop... well, his fingers are not for sale I guess laugh.gif A good player will sound good on pretty much any equipment.
