I’m using a telecaster for Guitar 1, but any guitar will do the trick. Select the bridge pickup for a clear and bright tone. Be sure to place a capo at the 7th fret.

Any acoustic guitar with work for Guitar 2.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amp is a desirable choice. Set the amp for a clean sound. Set the Drive to 25%, Bass to 45%, Mid to 55%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 60%.

Add plenty of reverb to both guitars for a dreamy sound.

I’m using 10-46 gage on the electric, 12-52 on the acoustic, and no pick for an expressive, delicate approach.

Here are the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe Model:
Drive: 25% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treb: 60% Presence: 60%
Hall Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 55%

TUNING : (low to high) D G D G A D (variation of DADGAD)
CAPO 7th fret
GUITAR 2 - Standard Tuning, No Capo
