Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: R&B -

This amp set­ting is de­signed to repli­cate Chris’ crunchy rhythm tone. The slightly high in­put gain set­ting would be overkill on a mod­ern amp, but when used on a vin­tage style amp like a Vox AC30 it cranks the over­all vol­ume, caus­ing the amp to 'break up' nicely. To achieve his creamy lead tones he would most likely have em­ployed the fuzz box of the day: the Gibson Mae­stro Fuzz-Tone pedal! For best re­sults se­lect your bridge pickup for rhythm work, switch­ing to the neck pickup for so­los while adding dis­tor­tion with a fuzz or over­drive pedal.
