Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: ROCK -

To get this type of tone, if you have a guitar with a hum­bucker you’ll be head­ing down the right road. Set up a mod­er­ate amount of gain and aim for a tight, punchy rock tone, but one that can be cleaned up as well. So-called su­per-Strats found favour at this time as their neck and mid­dle sin­gle-coils and thicker, more pow­er­ful hum­buck­ing bridge pickup made this type of guitar ideal for songs that need both clean and over­driven sounds. There’s of­ten cho­rus and re­verb on the gui­tars too.
