Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Blues -

We’re af­ter a high- gain rock tone, with tons of re­verb and a touch of de­lay. Frank favours SG-style gui­tars but his favourite live SG is fit­ted with three sin­gle- coils and a five-way se­lec­tor, with the bridge pickup on re­verse slant like Hen­drix. He also plays loud, so you need a gui­tar that re­sists feed­back when pushed into the red. Frank favours the neck pickup and he’s no valve purist. The Marino rig con­sists of a bunch of ped­als, via a self de­signed preamp, into the big­gest tran­sis­tor power amp he can find.
