Any acoustic guitar is suitable to play this song, but one with a brighter tone will help cut through the mix better. The acoustic requires a capo placed at the 2nd fret.

For the electric guitar, I'm using a Stratocaster, but any electric guitar with a single coil pickups can get close to the tone. I'm switching between the bridge pickup, which provides a brighter, more powerful tone for leads, and the neck pickup for rounder, bell-like rhythm tones.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amplifier is a perfect choice. Set the amp for clean sound with a touch of overdrive gain. Set the Drive to 50%, Bass to 45%, Mid to 55%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 65%.

Add some reverb for depth.

I used a 10-46 string gage, with a heavy pick so I can dig right into those rhythms and leads.

Here are the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe Model:
Drive: 50% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treb: 60% Presence: 65%
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 40%
