Get the tone
Nick used his Schecter Nick Johnston Traditional guitar and dialled up a Texas blues-style overdrive with middle and neck pickups selected. A single-coil electric will work best for this month’s performance; just dial up an overdriven tone with plenty of sustain and be prepared to experiment with the guitar’s controls to achieve the desired settings. Nick’s amp was a Friedman BE-100. Reverb and delay can be added, to taste.
