Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Blues -

Dickinson’s live setup is sim­plic­ity it­self, favour­ing electrics such as a Gibson LP or ES-335 into a Fuchs valve combo turned up loud for over­drive and con­trolled by the gui­tar’s vol­ume. But there’s al­ways a qual­ity over­drive pedal on hand for mo­ments of gain mad­ness. We’re af­ter a full bod­ied driven tone and don’t for­get to ex­plore your gui­tar’s pickup and vol­ume con­trols. Luther em­ploys a fin­ger­style tech­nique, com­bin­ing thumb, first and sec­ond fin­gers al­most all the time and pretty much ex­clu­sively when us­ing a slide.
