Guitar 1 is an acoustic guitar that plays open chords throughout the tune. Choosing an acoustic guitar with a bright shimmery tone will cut through the rhythm section better.

Guitar 2 is an electric baritone guitar, which is a guitar that is build to play somewhere in between a guitar and a bass. The tone of the guitar gives the tune a unique sound, and some great low register squawking!

Guitar 3 is an electric guitar equipped with single coil pickups such as a Strat or Tele. The single coil provides that bright, spanky tone perfect for some down home country pickin'.

As far as amps go, any vintage style tube amp such as a Fender Deluxe is a great choice. Set the drive control for a touch of grit and overdrive, but nothing too fuzzy or distorted. In country music, we want to keep those guitars comparatively clean and "spanky". Add a touch of reverb for some added depth. Check out the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe: Drive: 45% Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treble: 65% Presence: 60%

Baritone Tuning (low to high): G D G C E A (dropped G)
