Boss Tone Radio:
When I interview guitarists I do it as a musician interviewing a musician. I don’t think these interviews are quite like an average guitar magazine interview. Plus you can listen to the guys voice, way better than a written interview. Some of my favorite shows featured: Rusty Anderson from Paul McCartny’s band, Andy Summers, Steve Lukather, Rick Derringer, Marty Freidman… and so many others too… click the logo (right) to go there.
I did a real interesting project called “Pedals That Make the Tone”. This spanned about four years. Each month, corresponding to the issue of Guitar World Magazine, I describe which Boss pedals you can use to get the tone of that month’s song transcriptions.
I researched, then wrote about what the player used and I described how to get his tones. Then I recorded a sound-alike audio clip using the pedals I suggested. Since there were five songs per month for four years that means I covered about 240 songs. Click the pic (left) to go to the page bosses.com/tone. Then click the “Tone Index” button. At the Tone Index you can sort by month, song or artist. It’s very educational about tone, gear and famous players!
