Guitar 1 is a Les Paul electric guitar with the bridge pickup selected for a bright, powerful tone. Guitar 2 is a Stratocaster tuned to open E with a capo placed on the 5th fret. Use the bridge pickup for maximum clarity.

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

Add some reverb to all guitars for depth.

I’m using 10-46 gage with a heavy pick to attack those riffs and licks.

Here are the settings I used:

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

TUNING (GTR2 - Open E) : low to high: E B E G# B E
