For all the rhythm guitars in this song, I’m playing a Les Paul set to the bridge humbucker for a thick, powerful sound. For all leads, I’m using a Strat since the last lick of the song features a vibrato bar dive. However, any electric guitar can be used to play this song. You could adjust the final lick to something else if your guitar doesn’t have a vibrato bar.

A Fender tube amp is the best choice to replicate the tones in this tune. Dial in for a thick crunch sound. Start out by setting the Preamp Gain to 75%, Bass to 50%, Mids to 55%, and the Treble and Presence to around 60%.

Guitar 1 uses a phaser effect for a distinct swirling sound.

For the leads, I’m kicking in a Tube Screamer for more gain and sustain.

I’ve also added a touch of reverb to all guitars for depth.

I’m digging into these riffs and licks with a heavy pick while playing 10-46 string gauge.
