We'll keep the tone pretty basic for this tutorial, since there will be a lot of new concepts to take in. So dial a clean or lightly overdriven tone where you can hear all the notes in the chords. I'll be using my Telecaster on the middle pickup position.

If you want to, you can add a bit of reverb to sweeten it up! Reverb creates the sound of your amp being in a big room, but we'll just use a little bit of it. I almost always have a little bit of reverb in my tone.
