Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Creative Rock -

While more ‘gain’ makes tap­ping eas­ier, it also in­creases han­dling noise. So you need a com­pro­mise be­tween work­ing harder with less gain, but not mak­ing things too dif­fi­cult. I used a Fen­der Strat for the record­ing, and as its pick­ups are weaker than hum­buck­ers I added a dis­tor­tion pedal to boost the sig­nal. With sin­gle- coils, try 25% of your dis­tor­tion from the pedal and 75% from the amp. You’ll find the re­sults are sweeter and more com­pressed than when get­ting it all from the amp. A touch of re­verb and de­lay (in time with the track) will add smoth­ness to the over­all per­for­mance.
