Some guitarists are perfectly happy to use the same instrument and same amplifier for every song and every band. Others swap guitars for different tunes, or change amplifiers for different gigs. Sometimes this is down to choice or availability - but sometimes it can be about aiming for a specific tone quality with just the right amount of overdrive, crunch, or whatever. There's no right or wrong approach and whatever works best for you is probably the easiest way to look at it, and also the sentiment that comes across strongly from Dave Hunter in his writing.
This particular volume looks at "classic rigs" for guitar and amplifier set-up combinations. This raises the inevitable question of what exactly does "classic" mean in this context? The precise answer is that it means different things to different people, but more generally it usually is taken to refer to amplified guitar music from the era when electronic circuitry still used valves - so about 1955 till 1972ish.Read more ›
