Gibson Guitar's magazine has an interesting list of guitar sounds, tones really, that got our attention right away when we firs heard them. Making the list was Norman Greenbaumand that crazy, fuzzy, distorted guitar he played in Spirit in the Sky. It grabbed me the first time I heard it, it gets me every time I have heard it since. It just cuts through everything else and becomes the signature of this song. Check out the story here http://www.gibson.com/en-us/Lifestyle/Features/guitar-sounds-1104/ and go over the whole list. Also check out the video below, it's just the guitar part isolated and you can get a real feel for what he is dong. Stay Fuzzy!
