Description

I’m using a Semi-Hollowbody electric guitar for this tune, but any guitar is suitable. I’m choosing the bridge pickup for a bright, clear tone.

For amplification, I’m using a Fender tube amp set for clean with a touch of reverb for depth. Start out with the preamp gain around 30%, bass to 40%, Mids to 55%, Treble to 65%, and presence to around 50%.

I’m using a heavy pick with a 10-46 string gage.

SETTINGS:
Fender Twin Model:
Gain: 30%. Bass: 40%. Mids: 55%. High: 65% Presence: 50%

Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 25%
