I'm using a Stratocaster for this song, but any electric guitar is suitable to play this song.

For Guitar 1, select the bridge pickup for a brighter tone. Conversely for Guitar 2, select the neck pickup for a rounder, bell-like tone that suits the part perfectly.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amplifier is a perfect choice. Set the amp for a clean sound. Set the Drive to 30%, Bass to 45%, Mid to 55%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 65%.

Add some reverb for depth.

I used a 10-46 string gage, with a heavy pick so I can dig right into those rhythm parts.

Here are the settings I used:

Fender Twin Reverb Model:
Drive: 30% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treb: 60% Presence: 65%
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 25%
