Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: SHRED -

Paul’s dis­tor­tion sound is sur­pris­ingly ‘clean’. There is plenty of it, but typ­i­cal ‘fizzy’ dis­tor­tion is tem­pered by low­er­ing the tre­ble slightly to round out the sound. His trade­mark at this time was also to pan the dry guitar sig­nal with (roughly 32nd note at 225 bpm) de­lay to the op­po­site chan­nel, thus cre­at­ing a re­ally wide slap­back-style sound sim­i­lar to cho­rus. This avoids the need for dou­ble-track­ing the gui­tars and is a great tip for widen­ing the sound of a sin­gle guitar.
