Dial In a Riff Tone

Today I'll be using my Telecaster on the middle pickup. The middle pickup setting on a Telecaster is great for rock rhythm parts, but you can play these examples on any guitar. I'm gonna be using quite a bit of overdrive, and you can get this from the gain settings on your amp or from an overdrive pedal like the BOSS SD-1. I'll also be using a little bit of reverb.
