UTEOTW...better this time?



I tried UTEOTW a little earlier back and posted here. There was some talk about the tone I had and I tried some of the suggestions (added a Boost Comp is one) and instead of using the Vox AmPlug I used my AC4. I feel much better with this one. Not perfect by any means but I feel it's much better.

Here is the original version:

So yeah I just wanted to check in on that. Plus there hasn't been much activity in EBTTRT lately.

I'm diggin it. There's always going to be a degree of difference between our sounds and what The Edge actually puts out through his super-mega rig. Honestly, I think its nice to see that degree of difference and individuality come through

And agree'd on the lack of activity in here recently. Perhaps an EO rundown of Turin gear is in order?

I will have a more in-depth gear rundown soon.

Edge looks to be using the same guitars for same song bits.

He's using a Gibson Music Rising Les Paul for "Hold Me, Thrill Me...". He used the Goldtop for Popmart.

Flowering Rose of Glastonbury appears to be the 2008 clone of the auction 70's Les Paul Custom.

Gibson Limited Edition 1976 Explorer for "Return of the String Ray Guitar".

The one interesting move I saw was using a `70's Stratocaster for "Moment of Surrender", instead of the tobacco finish stereo Gretsch Country Club that he used on the first two legs of the tour.

Was it not the Goldtop for HMTMKMKM? If not, then I'm disappointing :P

Yes I happen to favor the Goldtop over most of his other Les Pauls. Maybe I am biased because I own one? He definitely needs to bring it out more!

For me, one reason I went with goldtop over any other is cause I love the look of edge's.

EO, do you have any photo's that suggest that its the MR les paul for HMTMKMKM?

Love his classic 70's LP Custom Creamtop.


On topic: Like the version, you should try to either notch down the distortion during the verse (or fingerpluck w/ thumb) and also the solo needs delay! Other than that it's a very good effort!
