Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: ROCK -

Ge­orge Har­ri­son used a Gretsch Duo Jet in the early Cav­ern Club days (fea­tured on the front cover of Cloud Nine). He made Rick­en­backer’s 360-12 and later moved on to Fen­der Te­les and Strats, as well as Gibson Les Pauls and SGs. Amps in­cluded Vox AC15, AC30 and AC100 and var­i­ous Fend­ers. His slide parts were mostly played on his orig­i­nal 1963 Sonic blue Strat, re-painted in psy­che­delic colours and named Rocky. Use a clean and bright tone with a min­i­mum of ef­fects (Ge­orge hated re­verb!).
