    Keir asks: What is the best guitar sound effect? 

    Or should it be unadorned and pure?

    is there anything thats pure any more? especially in rock?

    only thing that was pure is long gone, and thats the slow, strumming guitar of hank sr. who allegedly sold his soul to the devil at robert johnsons crossroads.

    but when you write lyrics like this, you dont need any Fat Boy, phasers, or fuzz

    Hear that lonesome whippoorwill
    He sounds too blue to fly
    The midnight train is whining low
    I’m so lonesome I could cry

    with that said i think every guitarist should master the theremin so anyone can bust into whole lotta love in a snap.
