Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: R&b -

This set­ting is in­tended to pro­vide the ‘fizzy’ over­driven sound typ­i­cal of Mike’s solo­ing tone. Se­lect your bridge pickup for best re­sults. You could also con­sider us­ing afuzz pedal for a more au­then­tic 60s tone. To clean up the sound for rhythm work sim­ply back off your gui­tar’s vol­ume con­trol. As with so many 60s pop and R&B bands Mike favoured semi-acous­tic guitars and was most of­ten pic­tured with a Gib­son ES-335. Amps were more than likely Vox AC30s.
