Open ended question, the tone on John Mayers stuff fits perfectly. It would be shit on anything by AC/DC
For sure, just striking up a conversation, my tastes change so often, can't believe I'm such a John Mayer fan now :lol:

Having seen Bad News live at donington, I'm not sure I agree. It would have been pretty shit even on a john mayer song.

Yeah, which is why I'm being flippant :) I have a couple of his dvd's including that one, I'm not a hater.

You should have done a 'Show a better guitar face than John Mayer' thread...

There are a few, including gazza moore and bb, but hey not that many.

What about a thread for guitar tones from non guitar-centric artists?

Talking about non guitar players, the Edge's tone on Pride is sooo good!
