Like many of y'all, I'm in a band with a guitarist. This guitarist has an electric guitar with more than one pickup. There's a switch which switches between the pickups. I realized today that I have absolutely no clue which pickup or pickups any guitarist from any band I play in is using on ANY song. I mean, I have never noticed that it sounds any brighter or darker. I don't know if they really don't sound all that different in a band context or if years of playing in bands with guitarists have honed my guitarist-ignoring skills to perfection.
