[QUESTION] Went back to listen to some of my favorite songs of my teen years, and have some questions about guitar sounds for you experts in that subject.

Specifically, Eyeless from Slipknot's first album

I tried learning that song on guitar within my first few years of playing and even with looking at that 5-star rated tab, I had no idea wtf I was hearing, I just knew that I loved it. Looking back, its obvious their guitar parts aren't that difficult but their tone really made it so special to me.

Does anyone know exactly how they were able to create that sound that was so awesome yet so hard for an amateur guitarist to decipher by ear? For reference, the riff that gave me such a hard time was the verse riff not so much the high intro riff or the chorus.

I heard some of Marilyn Manson's newer stuff and I definitely don't appreciate it as much as his earlier work. I always assumed John 5 had a lot to do with how successful his earlier work was. Does anyone have more info on this?

And an extra question, how often do you submit stuff to this subreddit to realize you forgot the tag requirements and have to submit it again? I do it almost every time.

Hi /r/Guitar

Every day, people are showing off new gear and that's cool. However, it'd be great to hear why you bought it though and what you like about it – you know – your own perspective that can't be found elsewhere on the internet.

I just think it would give more to talk about and increase the sub activity in a good way

Just got this cheap Les Paul knockoff from a guitar tech who had modified it. It has a Bigsby bridge installed on it and for a cheap guitar it sounds great. Like, one of the best guitars I've played.

Looking to expand my pedalboard

I'm looking to add more pedals to my board and I'm looking for suggestions. I currently have a tuner, overdrive, fuzz and a broken sansamp. I want to get something that'll be somewhat useful in a rock band and I'm looking at octave pedals, or a chorus pedal. But based on the band I'm in what would be useful?
