The guy who bought a Klon for $5000 and made ten times that in Youtube monetization by making a video about it :clap:
Do people actually make money from YouTube? The ones without tens of millions of views per video I mean.
You need a big following to make real money I gather.

Most of these you tubers sell merch or courses to make their money I believe. I'm not sure if many people make a living from you tube alone.

Old Santana had good tone.
EVH pre keys
Gary Moore on Corridors of Power
Chris Poland on early Megadeth
Tim Rodgers from You am I had a cool thing going on for a while.
The Warner Brothers (early 90s) from Melbourne, used steel-string acoustics into pedalboards and yes, very tasty.
Max from Checkerboard Lounge back in the early 90`s used a 335 and a marshall he would sit on, at the verge of feedback, just touching the strings would produce the warmest bloom.
the Wellington guy from Odessa had balls out tone from a small Fender amp each time I saw them.

Beautiful LP through a mix of vintage and modern Marshall’s.

Yes, yes. I produced and co-mixed it. But hey...
Do you remember what delay was used?

Not sure. May be an oldish Ibanez digital delay... It's been a while.

Paging JB. I'm currently gushing over Henrik's new album 'Missing pieces', it's fantastic. Have a listen to this track, it sounds very Mayer to me :wink:



Love the way the song builds and then into the solo at 2.59, even the vocals remind me of Mayer. Classy player

I was listening to Romeo and Juliet the other day and it made me think of this thread. Near the end of the song he comes in with an electric part, and man that's one of the best Strat tones I've ever heard. According to this article it may have been a Schecter. https://www.groundguitar.com/mark-knopfler-gear/
