Yep. That means U2.
Sorry, I posted my more technical post just below this one, so I was looking for a funny or mildly amusing post to go right here for those who dislike the technical posts. But I failed today. So, as is my default, I decided to go with a couple U2 clips. If you don’t like U2, I’m really sorry. But take a look at these clips and keep a few things in mind. One is that these are live. There’s some post-production, but seriously, these sound really good for live. Also, check out the energy they infuse into their shows. Astounding. And probably the most important part, look how full a band of 4 guys can sound (although there is a loop track on the second clip.) Every instrument in its place, not stepping on the other, just arranged perfectly. U2 is one of those bands where when you listen to their music, it’s like, ‘Nothing is happening. Why does it sound so good?’ I think that’s something we should be striving for.
And of course, tone. Whether you like U2 or not, most guitarists (myself included) can usually only dream of tone like that.
Enjoy. Or don’t enjoy, if you don’t like them. Either way.
