Guitar Techniques - - Play: Blues-rock -

When beefing up the gui­tar to sound big in a power trio go for a thick, mid­dle fre­quency ori­en­tated over­drive. The gui­tar will ac­tu­ally sound big­ger with less dis­tor­tion ( think SRV or Jimi Hendix). Ef­fects like de­lay and mod­u­la­tion can help cre­ate a stereo pic­ture with more depth. The ex­am­ples on this month’s CD were recorded with a James Tyler SE gui­tar and this was plugged into a Mar­shall 6100 An­niver­sary am­pli­fier. The ideas in this ar­ti­cle can be played on any type of gui­tar. All of the pickup selections and ef­fects are no­tated along­side the rel­e­vant ex­am­ples.
