Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: COUNTRY -

For this month’s record­ing I used a Gibson ES-335 dot gui­tar with the pickup se­lec­tor in the mid­dle po­si­tion. This gui­tar was plugged into a Fen­der Deville Am­pli­fier that was recorded with an SM57 mi­cro­phone. A Full­tone clean boost pedal was added along with some amp re­verb. To get the sound with your own set-up, sim­ply se­lect the bridge or mid­dle pickup and dial up a sparkling, clean sound. Adding a bit of re­verb or slap-back de­lay is an es­sen­tial ad­di­tion in your quest for an au­then­tic coun­try tone. fun-filled three min­utes of hot-coun­trymeets-rock­a­billy good­ness. Many thanks to Ju­lian web­ster Greaves for per­form­ing the har­mon­ica solo. there are loads of em­i­nently steal­able ideas here that you can bring into your own play­ing. Have fun!
