Good points, although I don't remember any Floyd on the setlist, wasn't really danceable material. As far as tone-chasing goes, its over for me thanks to Axe-fx. I think some folks don't want it to end....VintageGearGuy said:Although these are very valid points in one light, people are allowed to be picky, especially when they enjoy their hobbies and toys, and when technology generates more options and capabilities. Just because we all used basic cell phones not too long ago doesn't negate the value and fun of concerning ourselves with the latest smartphones which can, and do, makes a lot of our lives easier. I couldn't perform in my business day-to-day life without my phone beeping reminders at me all day and night and searching the net via google speech recognition when I need to know a fact or two on the go.
Besides, although people care what the audience hears, chasing tones is personal, and achieving different sounds brings with it satisfaction.
I can't help but wonder if Gilmour's sound would have been so moving if he would have been satisfied with "a marshall tube combo, a cheap whatever stompbox for leads, maybe a chorus, or something for color."
Anyways, my $.02
BTW, I hate smartphones. Expensive toys (like Axe-fx) :lol:
