I’m using a semi-hollowbody guitar for this song, but any electric guitar is suitable. I’ve selected the bridge pickup for a clear, bright tone.

A Fender tube amp is the best choice to replicate the electric tone in this tune. Dial in a clean - right on the edge of breakup - sound - for example, set the Preamp Gain to 45%, Bass to 50%, Mids to 55%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 65%. Add a touch of reverb to both guitars for depth.

Since we’re in standard tuning, I’m using regular light guage strings that are 10-46 along with a heavy pick.

Fender Deluxe Model:
Drive: 45% Bass: 50% Mid: 55% Treb: 60% Presence: 65%

Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 35%
