Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Video -

Bernie used his PRS SE Bernie Mars­den sig­na­ture model gui­tar di­rect into a vin­tage Vox AC4 amp. The bridge, neck, or both pick­ups to­gether, plus 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 helps to add va­ri­ety and also pro­motes nat­u­ral pauses in the phrases. Any elec­tric gui­tar will work well for this month’s per­for­mance. Dial up a creamy, light over­drive and be pre­pared to ex­per­i­ment with the con­trols to achieve the de­sired set­tings. Add a bit of re­verb or de­lay for that pro touch.
