Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: ROCK -

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.
