Get the Tone

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY -

An­gus uses a Gib­son SG based on his own 1968 model, into a Mar­shall 100-watt stack. Mal­colm prefers a Gretsch based on his 1963 Jet Fire­bird, also into a 100-watt Mar­shall. The brothers’ tones are quite dif­fer­ent; Mal­colm’s hav­ing a lit­tle more top end while An­gus’s is thicker, with more gain. You’ll need plenty of natural rock drive for both sounds, so why not set your lead sound (not too much dis­tor­tion – this is rock, not me­tal!) and turn the gui­tar’s vol­ume down for rhythm.
