Why is it that jazz guitarists like the dull, non-sustaining tone? FWIW, I can get it on my gibson really well, but I play with very heavy strings and 50's wiring so that could be a factor.
What's your opinion on Jeff Beck? I like his stuff with the Yardbirds, but I can't really get into his solo stuff. Admittedly I haven't given it another shot in probably 10 years.
Maybe it was an Asian who is used to doing that.
When I was in the Cambodian wilderness I had to squat in the woods to shit and I was terrified that I would shit on my own pants so I took them completely off.
I shit on them anyway.
