Blues Tone: Getting the Right Setup

Get full access

Here's another common blues lead setup. It's a master volume amp and a fuzz pedal. Fuzz has a cutting tone that is perfect for blues leads. However, you'll find it effects different guitars with a different sound. It's amazing that this effect makes certain guitars sound thinner and others thicker. Neither is better or worse - it's personal preference.

Here are the settings on each that I'm using:

Amp Settings: Volume 4, Master Volume 4, Bass 8, Mid 5, Treble 6

Fuzz: Level 5, Fuzz 5
