Get The Tone
Bernie used his PRS SE signature guitar plugged into a small vintage Vox amp. Bridge or neck humbucker selection and the tone and volume controls were set to taste on the fly. Many blues and rock guitarists change the controls from phrase to phrase and this adds variety and promotes natural pauses in the phrases. Any electric guitar will work well for this month’s per formance; just dial up a creamy, light overdrive and be prepared to experiment with the controls to achieve the desired settings. A bit of reverb or delay can be added for that ‘pro’ touch.
