Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: CREATIVE ROCK -

I used a Fen­der Strat for the demo record­ing mainly with the pickup se­lec­tor set in the out-of-phase po­si­tion be­tween the bridge and mid­dle pick­ups. There’s not too much dis­tor­tion in or­der to keep things tight and sweet; how­ever, I al­ways use a dis­tor­tion pedal to boost the sig­nal be­fore it gets to the amp. Gen­er­ally, try to get 25% of your dis­tor­tion from the pedal and 75% from the amp. A lit­tle de­lay can be added to the guitar track in tempo with the song. This helps to give both size and smooth­ness to your sound.
