"Low" features several layers of guitars, and in this tutorial I am going to break the song down using 3 guitars.

Guitar #1 will be our main guitar, playing the main motifs you hear all throughout the song. You will also use this guitar to play the rhythm guitars heard during the choruses and solo.

Guitar #2 will be our acoustic guitar, strumming along throughout the entire track. You will be playing the same progression throughout the whole song using a medium to heavy pick.

Guitar #3 is our other electric, playing the guitar solo as well as the delayed textures during the third verse and ending.

Here's the pickup and the tone and effect settings:

Guitar #1: Bridge Pickup, Dual Humbucker. Overdrive @ 50%, Compression Gain 1db, Room Reverb @ 50%

Guitar #2: Acoustic

Guitar #3: Bridge Pickup, Dual Humbucker, Overdrive @ 70%, Compression Gain 2db, Room Reverb @ 60%

Analog Delay 230MS, Eighth Note Triplets @ 50%
