Everything you need to know before playing ‘Gravity’
Neither overdriven nor completely clean, but with just enough gain to provide that wonderful singing sustain, this is a trademark tone to covet. During early live shows John played the track on various Fender Stratocasters, these days opting for his signature PRS Silver Sky. Amp-wise, he was using various Fender, Two Rock and Dumble amps. Select a clean channel on your amp, pushing the input gain for sustain and compression on the solos, backing off your guitars’ volume for the rhythm parts. Alternatively, experiment with a clean boost or transparent drive pedal to push the front end of your amplifier slightly.
