Any acoustic guitar is suitable to play this tune, and you'll need to place a capo on the 2nd fret. If you plan to play this song with a live band, an acoustic with a brighter tone will help to cut through the rhythm section a little easier.

The electric guitar of choice here is a Telecaster, for its bright, twangy, classic country tone, but any guitar with a single coil pickup in the bridge position can come close to the tones heard on the recording.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amp is a great choice. Dial in a clean sound with just a touch of drive to get some sustain without distortion. Add a touch of reverb to all guitars for some depth.

Fender Twin Model: Drive: 85% Bass: 55% Mid: 70% Treb: 65% Presence: 75%

Spring Reverb: WetDryMIX: 40%
