Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: CREATIVE ROCK -

I’m keep­ing to a typ­i­cal rock tone for this se­ries. I use a Fen­der Strat, so I al­ways use a dis­tor­tion pedal to boost the sig­nal be­fore it gets to the amp. Gen­er­ally, try to go for 25% of your dis­tor­tion from the pedal and 75% from the amp. You’ll find that the re­sults are sweeter and more com­pressed (even and tighter sound­ing) than when get­ting 100% of the dis­tor­tion from the amp. Typ­i­cally, most am­pli­fiers should be set as above. Fi­nally, some de­lay will also added to the gui­tar track that is in tempo with the track. This helps to give both size and smooth­ness to the gui­tar sound.
