    Not to sound like too much of a dickhead here ( I know..too late [img]tongue.gif[/img] ), but aside from a few guys that don't worry about the "brown sound", most guys seem only interested in getting that one sound.
    I changed back to a strat to go back to the music I want to play and also because I love the sound of a strat.
    I'm probably pissing up a rope here, being in a VH type forum, but I just wanted to show that a single coil strat can also be a versatile and fun instrument to play.
    The playing's nothing special, just jamming, but I was having a hell of a good time. I'm looking forward to it again this year.
    Since this is the guitar forum I took a couple of short 1 minute clips off some live jams I did last year. The software demo I have only allows 1 minute so I did 2 clips, 1 clean and one with a little more grunt, just to show the difference with a clean amp and using an MJM blues devil overdrive.
    Problem is I don't have anyplace to put sound clips onto.
    Would any of you guys know a site where you can upload this kind of stuff for free.

    well yes I want that elusive brown sound but that's not all, there are several style that I play and I own quite a few different guitars and strats are one of my favs, like my "Monkeyfoot"
    tune nothing VH in that for sure

    You're preachin' to the choir, here, Tribb. Some of us have had the good fortune to own a nice Strat and know what they can do... especially on position 4!

    I still think the original "brown sound" is the standard by which all other electric guitar tones are to be judged, but Stevie's own incredible, legendary tone is a very, very close second in my book.

    I just feel sorry for those who don't get it...

    Well, getting that brown sound came easy for me a long time ago, but it certainly isn't characteristic of my sound or what I like to sound like when I play.

    Until I got my Wolfie, my strat was my main axe, and probably still would be if I were currently gigging.

    I'll have some new clips ready soon myself, and I think you'll like the strat tone.

    Although my favourite sound is that typical saturated-humbucker-through-a-Marshall, beloved of us all, I have to say I do like the sound of the right strat. In partcular, I love the way a good strat can ROAR with the right amount of overdrive. But my second favourite sound is that of a telecaster. Because there's not a lot of sustain with a tele (when you try to do a wailing bend it tends to just kind of go 'EEK!') you really have to fight it to make it play, and that makes you approach your playing differently. You're forced to work that guitar, rather than hammereing out the licks you can play in your sleep. I have a track I recorded with my tele, and I'll post it if anyone wants to hear it.

    I agree with the comment about teles (all single coil guitar, IMO) taking A LOT OF WORK to sound good. Once you get it down though, the tones are endless. I like to play my strat because I seem to play it with more 'abandon'. I definitely play it different than my Hamer T-51 (which, BTW, has been modded with Duncan 59s). Both guitars 'play' the same, it's just that the single coils require more 'work', and therefore show the fruits of my efforts. My T-51 is my main axe now because I never have time for soundcheck. It always sounds 'pretty good'...it can sound great (my opinion there) but I have to tweak for 5-10 minutes and I usually just say "fuck it".
    My strat, OTOH, ALWAYS requires 15-25 minutes of tweaking to become pleasant to my ears.
    Speaking of tweaking , distortion tones are ez for me...it's those clean tones that are a motherfucker to dial in...

    Thanks Mondola. I appreciate that.
    cyberfiddl, I agree with you, except that i find it easier to get a clean sound than to get just the right amount of overdrive.

    Thanks guys. I was surprised by the no. of offers of help I received.
    Mondola got back to me quickly, and I owe him so to speak, so he gets to take first shot at me. [img]tongue.gif[/img]
    They're just short 60 sec. clips taped live off the floor from a blues jam so excuse the quality( as well as the playing..lol).
    Ok, I've got my blindfold on, fire away. [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]
