Get the tone
Buddy has been associated with Fender guitars for most of his playing life, mainly Strats and Teles but sometimes he has used a semiacoustic Guild Starfire. He has tended to use a variety of Fender amps and plays with both his fingers and a pick, sometimes together but more often than not independently. For these two examples, go for a bright sound with plenty of natural overdrive but not thick fuzz. Select the bridge or middle pickup setting with perhaps a tiny splash of reverb or delay.
