We all have our own definition of that "Holy Grail" of tone. Some have been able to find it, others are still searching. One thing holds true even here on TB... "one man's trash is another man's gold". So, what's your gold? What song epitomizes the tone you lust after, and what is it about the tone just grabs you? While there's many for me, if I had to narrow it down to say 3 or 4 of them (in no particular order), I'd choose these (keep in mind they're all very different IMO). 1) Knockin' on Heaven's Door (Guns & Roses version). While I'm not a huge G&R fan, I have to turn the bass up every time I hear it. Duff McKagan's bass just punches me in the gut on this one. 2) Almost everything from Fourplay. Nathan East nails my idea of Hi-Fi sound, not to mention the perfect slap tone. 3) Closer to the Heart (Rush). Actually there are other Rush songs that may be better examples, but this one will do. While it's not quite "My Sound", that classic "Ric" sound is what made me want to pick up the bass in the first place. 4) Flea's slap and fingerstyle tone on Aeroplane... Brings a big smile to my face everytime. - Frank.
