Since there is no guitar on the original recording of this song, we’ve adapted the harpsichord parts over to guitar. Any guitar, acoustic or electric, can be used. I’ve chosen a semi-hollowbody guitar, using the bridge pickup for a bright tone to help cop the sound of the harpsichord.

For amplification, I’m using a Fender tube amp set for clean with a touch of reverb for depth. Start out with the preamp gain around 30%, bass to 40%, Mids to 55%, Treble to 65%, and presence to around 50%.
I’m using a heavy pick with a 10-52 string gage.
