Characteristics like tubes, gain, wattage, channel switching, reverb, tremolo, master volume and speaker construction typically dominate the conversation. But another absolutely essential factor is often overlooked: whether the back of the cabinet containing the speaker or speakers you use is open or closed.

Comments
For many Beatles fans, 1967’s Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band represents the pinnacle of the Fab Four’s achievements. Densely textured, sublimely arranged and packed with some of Lennon and McCartney’s best songs, the disc remains a touchstone for every pop band that puts a premium on melody and craftsmanship. Incredibly, however, as writer Philip Norman and even Sir George Martin have pointed out, The Beatles’ psychedelic masterpiece might have been even better, had some grievous missteps not occurred.

And again, this is partially because these licks and patterns just sound so dang good.
