Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Creative Rock -

Most amps would be set as above for a good rock tone. I used a Fen­der Strat for the au­dio and, as its sin­gle- coil pick­ups are weaker than hum­buck­ers, I use a dis­tor­tion pedal to boost the sig­nal be­fore it gets to the amp. Some re­verb and de­lay (matched to the tempo of the track) help to give both size and smooth­ness to the sound. Some play­ers pre­fer the neck pickup but the bridge will work fine too. Palm mut­ing will add punch and def­i­ni­tion.
