Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: BLUES -

Eric tends to use Fen­der Stra­to­cast­ers or St Blues Blind­side gui­tars, the lat­ter made in Mem­phis Ten­nessee. Part of his sound in­volves the use of an EWS Brute Drive made by Ex­otic ped­als. We’re aim­ing for a sin­gle-coil sound with a mod­er­ate to high level of over­drive. I played a 1961 Strat into a J Rock­ett Archer pedal, and a Mesa­Boo­gie Transat­lantic amp set on the 15-watt Tweed valve voic­ing. I’m also us­ing a Mojo Vibe pedal for the back­ing gui­tar on Ex­am­ple 2.
