This tune features both acoustic and electric guitars. Any acoustic guitar is suitable to play this song, but one with a brighter tone will cut through the band better.

Any electric guitar will work great to play this song. The tones have more to do with the amp settings and effects used.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amp is a great choice. Dial in some preamp gain to give just a touch of grit and sustain. Add some reverb for depth.

Guitar 2 uses a flanger to give some cool color and texture to the tune. The lead guitar (guitar 3) uses a fuzz pedal to provide an overdriven lead tone. Here are the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe Model: Drive: 45% Bass: 55% Mid: 70% Treb: 65% Presence: 55%

Flanger (Guitar 2): Rate: 50% Depth: 50% Wet/DryMIX: 50%

Fuzz (Guitar 3): Gain: 80% Tone: 65%

Spring Reverb: WetDryMIX: 40%
