Any acoustic guitar can be used to play this tune. Be sure to place a capo at the third fret.

I'm using a Strat to play the slide parts, but any electric guitar with single coil pickups is suitable. Be sure to use the bridge pickup for a clear tone. You'll need a slide to play these licks.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amp is a desirable choice. Set up the amp for a clean sound just on the edge of breakup. Set the Drive to 45%, Bass to 45%, Mid to 55%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 65%.

Add some reverb to all guitars for depth.

On the acoustic, I'm using a 12-56 gage with heavy pick to dig right into those strums. On the electric, I'm using 10-46 gage with my fingers to play the slide licks.

Here are the settings I used:


Fender Deluxe Model:
Drive: 45% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treb: 60% Presence: 65%
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 35%
