GUITAR: I'm using a Les-Paul style guitar, but any guitar with a humbucker pickup in the bridge position will work great here. Make sure your volume and tone controls are all the way up, and you are switched to the bridge pickup for maximum clarity and power.

AMP: This tune requires 3 distinct tones to cover all the textured guitar parts here. You'll need a modern heavy crunch sound, a clean sound with delay/echo, and a semi-crunch mellow distorted sound with an 8th note repeat. Here are my settings for each tone:

CLEAN: Voc AC-30 Model
Drive: 10% Bass: 45% Mid: 60% Treble: 60% Presence: 60%
Spring Reverb: Wet/Dry: 40%
Delay: Time: 390ms Feedback: 25% Wet/Dry: 25%

CRUNCH: Modern Hi-Gain Model (Mesa, Bogner, Diezel)
Drive: 100% Bass: 55% Mid: 100% Treble: 50% Presence: 60%

MELLOW CRUNCH: Marshall Plexi Model Used for 2nd Verse Lick:
Drive: 55% Bass: 0% Mid: 75% Treble: 60% Presence: 60%
Delay: Time: 328ms Feeback: 25% Wet/Dry: 25%
