I’m using a Gibson Les Paul for this song, but any electric guitar is suitable. Be sure to select the bridge pickup for a bright and powerful tone.

As far as amps go, any Marshall style tube amp is a desirable choice. Set the amp for a lite crunch sound. Set the Drive to 60%, Bass to 50%, Mid to 55%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 60%.

For Guitar 2, crank up the drive on the amp, or kick in an overdrive pedal for more gain and sustain. Add some reverb for depth.

I’m using 10-46 gage with a heavy pick to dig into these strums and licks.

Here are the settings I used:

Marshall Plexi Model:
Drive: 60% Bass: 50% Mid: 55% Treb: 60% Presence: 60%
Tube Screamer (Guitar 2):
Drive: 55% Tone: 60%
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 35%
