Guitar Tone: Pursuing the Ultimate Guitar Sound
By Mitch Gallagher
Guitar Tone: Pursuing the Ultimate Guitar Sound is an amazing resource for guitarists searching for not just the best tone, but their own distinctive, individual tone. First covered are the instruments and components that create tone. The book then examines the sounds and tonal approaches used in different styles of music. The last section features interviews with today's hottest guitarists to learn the secret to their idiosyncratic tones, including gear lists and suggestions for re-creating specific tones.
". . . I learned a ton of things. Dense, deep, often fascinating, and always authoritative, this title is not a quick read--but it's a comprehensive collection of knowledge on everything (and I mean everything!) related to guitar tone."
