For this tutorial I'm going to use my Stratocaster, and I'll be running it through a modeled Fender amp with a little bit of reverb. You'll notice that I switch between the warm and full sounding neck pickup and the nasaly and more aggressive sounding bridge pickup. For the overdrive I'll be using a pedal similar to a Tube Screamer.

For most of the examples you want to make sure that you are not using too much distortion, because we'll be working on some pretty subtle techniques that can easily be drowned out by too much gain. Too little is better than too much while you're learning the techniques, and then you can always experiment with adding more afterwards.
