This is the solo (not sure who is playing) off of Joe Cocker's version of "I Put a Spell on You".

Any thoughts what S-Gear preset comes closest?

Guitar solo starts about 1:26

Great track!..I loved JC...

Btw - according to the info I have..the guitars on that track were played by: Dean Parks, Eric Clapton, Mike Landau and Shayne Fontayne. - Mr EC on the solo?..

Cheers and thanks too for the preset! :-)

I don't know who it was, but I'm comfident to be able to tell who wasn't: Shane Fontayne and Eric Clapton.

I'm 50/50 on Mike Landau but I'm not familiar with Dean Parks.

I would say Dean Parks because of the phrasing. It is not like Mike Landau phrasing. Any of these guitarist could have done exactly what the producer wanted :-)

Another great preset fatherjacques :thumbs up:

The solo in this track is a bit of a mystery. The phrasing sounds like it could be EC but the tone is more Robert Cray.

Cheers,
Mike

I am experimenting a lot these days.

So many things you can do with S Gear when you take the time to try and adapt the sound to your playing and guitars.

I am like a kid in a candy store. Eevn after all these years.

Mike you are the best!! :good job: :rock out:

Not the tone nor the phrasing suggest this. But hey, everybody can have a day where you're "not yourself", LOL!

Whoever it is, I love the tone and phrasing on this solo!
Last night I was playing with my SG (P90's) and a setting out of the Steeler (probably fatherjacques' preset for that Pete Thorn tone) , but with the pickup volume down and playing with my fingers: got pretty close to this!!

I guess I could nail it with a strat.

They do not call him slow hands for nothing.

He was coined 'Slowhand' because he used to use really light gauge strings, and when he broke one on stage the audience would give him a slow hand clap while he changed it. I think it was the manager of the Yardbirds that first called him that, partly as a pun because he considered him a fast player.
