Get the tone
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.
