Being about 95% ignorant about guitars and tonality, I have a problem sometimes either expressing or understanding descriptions about sound qualities.Kinda like all those flowery descriptions of wine... But noodling around with my no-name/Glarry telecaster, I'm surprised that I'm actually getting some tones that I sort of recognize. Out in the Man Shed I have a couple amps hooked up, an old Brownsville with an overdrive button and 2 gain pots, as well as the usual vol/treb/mid/bass. Not knowing what I am doing, I took the output (headphones) and went to the input of the keyboard low power 2 channel amp (also with vol/treb/mid/bass) with reverb. That limits the max output, but gives pretty neat distortion at low vol levels so I don't blow out the neighbors. But now to the tone quality question. This is gonna sound weird but I do not know how to express it differently. Some sounds I hear have a distinct shape. As in a physical shape, and I hear some sounds as 'tubular', the sound as a tube (like a pipe, not a vacuum tube). The telecaster is where I'm starting to approach what I hear the pros produce. I'm using the tele neck, and playing around with different settings on everything, the Brownsville, the piano amp, and the guitar. With big broad strokes, if this makes any sense at all, what am I hearing, does it have a name, and where should I head with trying to dial it in further? I hear it in several places in the vid, 1:20+, 1:30+, 2"20-ish, and especially the last note of the 'intro', right before Mason crashes in.
