Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: THEORY -

Any elec­tric gui­tar will work well for this month’s per­for­mances. Just dial up an ‘al­most clean’ tone and be pre­pared to ex­per­i­ment with the gui­tar’s con­trols to achieve the de­sired re­sults. All the pickup se­lec­tions and ef­fects used are no­tated along­side the rel­e­vant ex­am­ples. A bit of re­verb or slap-back de­lay can be added for that pro­fes­sional touch. I used my PRS Cus­tom 22 plugged into a Fen­der Blues Deville amp. A lit­tle spring re­verb or slap-back de­lay was added as and where ap­pro­pri­ate. A clean boost was achieved by us­ing an Ibanez Tube Screamer on a low gain set­ting. The ‘or­gan’ ac­com­pa­ni­ment was per­formed with a Les­lie style fast cho­rus set­ting. See if you can em­u­late th­ese sounds us­ing your own gear.
