    But, that's my point... it shouldn't be about the guitar. The quality of the guitar only affects the sound quality (to a certain extent). You can play with emotion on any instrument.
    You can't put that emotion across as well with a recorder though can you, so the quality of the instrument or voice is actually important in getting the emotion across.

    That's who Scarlett Johannson covered? Hmm. My throat's already on fire as it is, don't think having to listen to him singing like that helped.

    That was pretty awful.

    Here's a tune I recently stumbled on, not my usual cup of tea but I won't deny I like it >

    You're a ****. This is a Tom Waits thread and Enya of all people certainly isn't welcome.

    OP I love Waits although considering his voice sounds more strained on that song than most of his other work, I don't think it's going to get the most positive response in this forum. Another of his more emotive songs, and one of my favourites:

    This is my choice. The lyrics are amazing and the song in general is so haunting...

    Put a sock in it. I'll consider playing that music again only if I need to scare away a wild animal.

    Anyway, title of the thread doesn't say anything about Tom Waits, does it tough guy?

    The Guitar in that shows more emotion than any voice can.
    Disagree. That was fairly emotionless tbh.

    The guy singing here has been through so much and you can here it in his voice.

    Fairly emotionless? Because he's showing his emotion trough a device other than his lyrics or voice? Kudos for Bonamassa for expressing it through his strings I think. Epic.

    I don't think it comes across :confused: Any good guitarist with a mellow tone that grimaces and sways a bit is suddenly very emotional?

    I'm talking about the sound he makes through the guitar, nothing to do with how he moves. And he is more than just a 'good guitarist'.

    Uh... Any good guitarist could get the same sound from a guitar. See, this is why I don't agree. An electric guitar is a machine. Two different guitarists can create the same sound as long as they use the same guitar. A voice is unique.

    Absolutely love this song. Good choice.

    I couldn't listen to the first song for the sheer fact the vocals didn't meeet my tastes... sounded horrendous.
