Get the Tone
One common factor among Whitesnake’s guitarists is the humbucking guitar. This will provide the required fatness of tone with which to feed your amp. Regarding gain, less is usually more; too much will thin the tone out, so only use what you need to get the notes to sustain. Turn the guitar’s volume down for the Moody, Marsden examples and up for Vai and Sykes.
