Essential Listening: 14 Addictive Guitar Tones That'll Have You Crying Out for More
Essential Listening: A guide to 14 addictive guitar tones that'll have you wailing out for more.
“The Fly,” U2 (The Edge)
Like Clapton’s woman tone, getting the Edge’s sound is hardly as simple as using a Les Paul through a Vox AC30 with Alnico Blue speakers and a couple of effects.
As with all the best U2 songs, the Edge’s guitar work in “The Fly” leaves lots of space. It also seems simple, but his choices (and tone) are unique and play to the strengths of the song. That way, when he takes off, the sound truly reaches the stratosphere.
Throw in a little wah on the solo and the magic really happens.
