Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Video -

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.
