Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

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, more even and tight sound­ing than when get­ting 100% of the dis­tor­tion from the amp. Typ­i­cally, most am­pli­fiers should be set as above. Some de­lay added to the gui­tar track, in tempo with the track, will help to give both size and smooth­ness to the gui­tar sound.
