• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Chorus or no Chorus that is the question.....

Chorus was the worst thing about the guitar in the 80's. It pussyfies everything. Even Jake E. Lee was using it. Ugh. :## I remember moving to Dallas in '91 and every "Rock" band had a guitar player using it.....except for the Blues guys.

I feel the same. Maybe because I experienced the same thing (in Dallas). It just screamed cheesy to me. I especially hate those who automatically use it with clean tone. I was checking out a nice set of pickups at the guitar show once. I was in the zone playing some cool riff and people actually gathered around to listen (that never happens to me). The dealer walked over and said check this out, then flipped on some chorus effect. It totally killed it. I wanted punch him.

a clean electric guitar tone is a beautiful thing. Don't try to make it sound like a half assed 12 string.

The only 80s guy I can think of whose use of chorus didn't bug me was Andy Summers. Alex Lifeson needed chorus rehab like Kirk Hammet needed wah rehab.:hee
