Description

Any acoustic guitar can be used to play this tune, but one with a brighter tone would cut through the band mix a bit better.

As for the electric guitars, I’m using a the bridge humbucker of a Les Paul for a powerful, biting tone.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amp is a desirable choice. Crank up the amp for a clean on the edge of breakup tone. Set the Drive to 45%, Bass to 45%, Mid to 55%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 65%.

Add some reverb to all guitars for depth.

On the acoustic, I’m using a 12-56 gage with heavy pick to dig right into those strums. On the electric, I’m using 10-46 gage with a heavy pick to attack those riffs and fills.

Here are the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe Model:

Drive: 45% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treb: 60% Presence: 65%
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 35%
