The list of songs with great guitar tone is endless, and singling out any one as the best is, of course, subjective. But some guitar tones scream out for attention, and the best ones don’t do that literally. Instead, they pull at the melody and cut across the bed created by the rhythm section, without being too showy or abrasive or predictable.
Musicians can still be a little fuzzy when it comes to describing the sound of a fuzz box. Some guitarists will tell you it sounds like a 2,000-pound bee trapped in a sturdy metal box — perhaps with a potentiometer installed somewhere behind the wings. And while many early fuzz guitar tunes and tones did indeed make the most of the original fuzz buzz, fuzz actually has many facets, many sides, many fuzz faces, if you will.
