GUITAR: Any guitar with a humbucker in the bridge position is suitable for this tune. I would favor a humbucker over a single coil pickup to give you more power and a more well rounded sound.

AMP: The guitarist in Incubus has always used Vox AC-30s in his setup, and this song is no exception. Any amp that has some nice crunch but cleans up nicely will also do. In these videos, I used a Vox AC-30 model with the following settings:

DRIVE:100%, BASS:45, MID:70%, TREB:70%, PRES:65%

EFFECTS:
FLANGER: SPEED:.25Hz, DEPTH:45%, WET/DRY MIX:47%
DELAY (set for repeating 8th notes): TIME: 390ms FDBK:50%, WET/DRY MIX:45%

FX guitar: clean up drive setting to 60%
Clean guitar: clean up drive setting to 30%
