Get the sound

Ev­ery­thing you need to know be­fore play­ing ‘Oh Well’

Total Guitar - - CLASSIC TRACK -

Peter Green used his 1959 Gib­son Les Paul famed for its trade­mark tone, which can be at­trib­uted to a fault in one pickup. Danny Kir­wan likely used a P-90 loaded Les Paul. Still, this track is stan­dard blues-rock fare so most elec­tric gui­tars will suf­fice. You don’t need too much over­drive on your amp; both Green and Kir­wan’s tone is all about get­ting that elu­sive ‘not quite clean/not quite dis­torted’ sound spot on.
