The setting I'm using for the main riff is the Fender Bassman setting of my Vette II amplifier, with the bass at 50%, 80% in the mids, 100% in the treble, and the drive is at 80%.

I'm also using a built-in effect called "synth lead" on the wave 5 setting at mixed in at 60%.

I've also added some delay at 500 ms and mix of 45%, and a concert hall reverb mixed in at 40%, with the same "synth lead" effect except this time on wave 2 and mixed in at 75%.

For the droning open strings, I'm using an effect called lumpy phase with the speed at 8 hertz and the depth at 40%.

This will all sound cool even if you don't have all these effects. You can try playing the song with any effects you have, or just use basic distortion. Experiment and have fun!
