I'm using a Stratocaster electric guitar for this tune, but any guitar is suitable. Choose the bridge pickup for more power and clarity.

As far as amps go, any Fender-style tube amp is a fine choice. Set the amp for a bright clean tone. Set the Drive to 35%, Bass to 25%, Mid to 60%, Treble to 80%, and Presence to 75%.

Guitar 1 uses a fuzz effect throughout to provide a cool texture.

Add some reverb for depth.

I used a 10-46 string gage, with a heavy pick so I can get aggressive with it! Here are the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe Model:
Drive: 35% Bass: 25% Mid: 60% Treb: 80% Presence: 75%
Fuzz (Guitar 2):
Fuzz : 75% Tone: 100%
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 45%
