Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: R&B -

This is a gen­eral set­ting for solo work. For clean rhythm tones sim­ply back off your gui­tar’s vol­ume con­trol. For a more au­then­tic lead sound try adding a de­lay pedal in front of your amp (th­ese work best as the last ef­fect in the chain if you’re us­ing sev­eral ped­als). Keep the de­lay time and re­peat con­trols low and the mix con­trol at 50% to achieve a 50s slap­back ef­fect. There were very few ef­fects avail­able to gui­tarists in the mid-60s; ana­logue tape echo units were ex­tremely popular and used by gui­tarists well into the 70s to ‘fat­ten up’ their so­los.
