Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

Jeff Lynne prefers clas­sic in­stru­ments such as Gib­son Les Paul, Fender Strat and Tele, and Gib­son acous­tics. Amps are of­ten clas­sic Fender or Vox style and ef­fects are min­i­mal. There’s a crunch to the over­driven parts, but al­ways serv­ing the ar­range­ment, rather than over­pow­er­ing it. For the elec­tric rhythm parts go for mid­dle or bridge pickup, and for the solo try a warm and flutey neck pickup tone. Go easy on the re­verb and de­lay.
