Get the tone
Rhythm guitarist Doug Fieger used a Fender Strat and lead guitarist Berton Averre a Gibson Les Paul. The two sounds blend perfectly to provide the edgy vibe. To get the sound with your rig select the bridge pickup and set the amp for a gritty crunch that maintains the clarity of the notes in the chord; it should be more like a loud clean than overdrive and when you get this sound correct it’s very satisfying. The guitars have no reverb added other than what was captured from the live room. This makes the band sound very ‘in your face’ so feel free to add a little room reverb if you have it.
