Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Session -

A clean tone is all that’s re­quired for this style. An au­then­tic ‘50s sound is best achieved with a big arch­top style gui­tar into a clean valve amp, let­ting the pick­ups clip the valves for a light over­drive when you dig in. There were no over­drive or dis­tor­tion ef­fects back then, so use any over­drive ef­fect very mildly if try­ing to sim­u­late the sound. In ad­di­tion, a slap­back (one re­peat) echo and lash­ings of re­verb are a must! Of course, most gui­tars set clean can pro­vide a good ap­prox­i­ma­tion of the tone.
