Get the tone
Omar Rodriguez-Lopez has used a number of guitars over the years, including a Gibson SG. But one of his main instruments has been an Ibanez. In fact Ibanez manufactured the ORM-1 signature guitar for him (pictured left) until 2012. Sonically, the track this month has various envelope filters and chorus added to the rhythm and a bit of modulated delay on the lead section. The parts are all very ‘anti’ the usual rock guitar ideas, so use whatever modulation devices you have and experiment.
