I'm wondering how to get a particular sound which you hear a lot on recordings, for example The Stone Roses, Waterfall. I've no idea how to describe it...it's not a stringy sound, it's more like a warm muddy fuzzy sound. But you also hear it on many songs, from the Killers to the Beatles. If anyone can make sense of that, and knows what I'm talking about, what are they doing to get that sound please?
Tube amps cranked a little hard.
It's a tough one to pull off in a live mix. The overdriven tones tend to be buried by ignorant guitar players. If you listen to isolated Macca you wouldn't believe how slotted the bass is in the mix, but together it's delicious. JimmyM has a bunch of tracks, he can probably tell you exactly where the emphasis goes.
A useful trick is everyone playing reasonable volume levels. It's so much easier to hear tone when it's not blasting your ears.
How much do you want to spend? A pedal can get you most of the way for a lot less than the tube amp. Mesa d180.
