GUITAR: I'm using a Les Paul style guitar, but any guitar with a humbucker in the bride position is suitable for all the parts in this tune. The humbucker gives you plenty of power and clarity.

AMP: A Mesa Boogie Rectifier style amplifier is the ideal choice for this tune, although any modern tube amp with a distortion channel can give you what you need here. You will need a clean setting and a dirty setting for this song.

Here are my settings using a Mesa Dual Rectifier model:
DRIVE:75%, BASS:75%, MID:40%, TREB:60%, PRES:100%
For your clean sound, bring the drive down to 5%.
For the guitar solo, bring the drive up to 100%.

EFFECTS: (for FX guitar):
FLANGER: Speed: .25Hz Depth 45% Mix: 40%
DELAY: Time: 390ms Feedback 35% Mix 35%
