Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: RHYTHM -

Since rock’n’roll has been per­formed on gui­tars as dis­parate as Gibson ES-350, 335, 345 and 355, Fen­der Stra­to­caster, Tele­caster, Jaguar and Jazzmas­ter - and of course all man­ner of Gretsches - pretty much any elec­tric will work well this month. Just dial up an ‘al­most clean’ tone (Fen­der amps were the main tool of choice), use whichever pickup feels right for the artist con­cerned, and ex­per­i­ment with the gui­tar’s con­trols to achieve the de­sired re­sults. A bit of re­verb or slap-back de­lay can be added for that fi­nal, pro­fes­sional touch.
