Trouble (Cage The Elephant)

I’m using a Strat-style guitar set to the neck pickup to play this song, but any electric guitar can be used. Any acoustic guitar can be used, but one with a brighter tone will help cut through the band a bit better.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amp is a great choice. Set up the amp for a clean sound. Set the Drive to 35%, Bass to 50%, Mid to 50%, Treble to 65%, and Presence to 65%.

Guitar 1 uses a fuzz effect for the prechorus riff, and a high octave pitch effect for the interlude melody. Add plenty of reverb to both guitars for depth.

I’m using 10-46 gage with a heavy pick to dig into parts. For the acoustic, I’m using 11-52 with a medium pick.

Here are the settings I used:

Fender Twin Model:
Drive: 35% Bass: 50% Mid: 50% Treb: 65% Presence: 65%
Big Muff Fuzz Pedal:
Gain: 85% Tone: 85% Level: 75%
POG Pedal:
+1 Octave: 50% Dry: 50%
