Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: THEORY -

When beef­ing up the gui­tar to sound big for blues, many play­ers choose thicker strings and a light over­drive. The Ibanez Tube Screamer is a popular choice of over­drive pedal as it pro­vides a pleas­ing blues tone. The ex­am­ples on this month’s au­dio were recorded with a James Tyler SE gui­tar, and this was plugged into an Ibanez Tube Screamer and a Fen­der Blues Deville am­pli­fier. The ideas here can be played on any type of gui­tar. All of the pickup se­lec­tions and ef­fects are no­tated along­side the rel­e­vant ex­am­ples.
