Guitar Techniques

Get the Tone


Kirk used his Les Paul’s bridge and neck pickup together, combined with a fairly clean tone. Many old-school blues guitarists use a tone that’s just on the edge of break-up and this promotes natural sounding dynamics in the phrases. Any electric guitar will work well for this month’s performanc­e. Just dial up a creamy, light overdrive and be prepared to experiment with the guitar’s controls to achieve the desired settings. A splash of reverb can be added for that profession­al touch.
