Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: ROCK -

Brian May has one of those truly unique gui­tar tones; a com­bi­na­tion of coin in­stead of pick and his fa­mous Red Spe­cial through Vox AC30s. A bridge hum­bucker with the amp’s mid-range boosted and a healthy dol­lop of drive will get you rea­son­ably close, how­ever. As well as plenty of mid-range, you might also like to push your hi-eq (on ei­ther amp or pedal) to get some of the brit­tle­ness that ex­ists in Brian’s sound.
