Key to the band’s sound was the dual-SG interplay of Michael Bruce and Glen Buxton. “We always tried to make the guitar parts as meaningful to the tunes as we could,” Dunaway told Gibson.com in 2007. “Michael had a clean, cutting sound, and distinct notes, whereas Glen was more about feel, and was more edgy and loose.

Gibson Tone Tips: Home Tone vs. Gig Tone

In this installment of Gibson Tone Tips, I want to expend a few words on the concept of “home tone” vs. “gig tone”. This is something that experienced performing musicians know intuitively, but which often slaps newcomers to the live venue right in the face when they come up against it for the first time. To preface: there’s so much talk of “tone” these days, and so many guitarists are chasing it for all their worth, but more often than not this pursuit is undertaken in the isolation of a player’s living room, bedroom, home studio, or some other “home alone” environment. There’s nothing at all wrong with that, and these places are where we practice, learn, discover, and sometimes record the results. But honing our ultimate tone in these subjective environments can often lead to disappointment when we get out into the entirely subjective real world. Let’s find out why.

The world may not be “right” on a lot of days, but it’s certainly a right-handed world. Left-handers – estimated at 10-15% of all people – get a raw deal. Scissors, golf clubs, special non-smudging pens (think about writing on paper with your left, right-handers!), jar openers, gardening tools and more… All are specialized products you may need if you are left-handed.

The Pumpkin Chord

Comments
Many years ago Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins made an off-hand joke in a guitar magazine that a particular chord that he was using heavily was called ‘The Pumpkin chord.’ This particular chord sounds really killer, it’s really simple to play, and sure, Hendrix did it too, but plenty of other people probably have as well. So it’s well worth exploring whether you’re a Pumpkins fan, a Jimi fan or whatever you’re into.
