Everything you need to know before playing ‘Live Forever’
Set up a mildly overdriven, warm tone from your amp and use a distortion pedal to add a bit of grit. If you haven’t got a distortion pedal, raise the gain and treble settings on your amp instead. Back in 1994, Noel’s main guitar was an Epiphone Les Paul Standard, so use a guitar equipped with humbuckers and select the bridge pickup. Use a delay pedal to recreate the dense wall of sound of the rhythm parts and also for the solo. Finally, add a touch of chorus for the verse riffs and the arpeggios in the chorus.
