Is Tone Really in the Fingers?

The question, expression, declaration, or however it gets said seems to make its round about once a week on social media. It usually turns into an argument and the post gets deleted, people get banned, and the world implodes a little more on itself. This post is going to more of one man’s opinion and not a who’s right and who’s wrong. Okay, that may be a lie…

Well, Kirk Hammet, guitarist for the band Metallica, went out on a limb made the statement that he thinks his pedal company is “the first time you’ll see a pedal company being driven by an actual guitar player.” on twitter this week. I haven’t met many pedal company owners but I’m pretty sure the ones I’ve made acquaintances with, play guitar. In fact, I’ve seen them play.
