A Stratocaster style guitar is a great choice for this tune, but any guitar with a single coil pickups will be suitable. The single coil provides a bright, sparkling tone perfect for funky guitar parts. On the Strat, choose pickup position number 2 from your 5 way switch. This turns on the bridge and middle pickups, for a thinner, funkier sound.

A Fender style tube amp is the perfect choice for this tune. Set for a clean sound, and add some reverb for depth. Here are the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe Model: Drive: 45% Bass: 30% Mid: 70% Treb: 80% Presence: 75%

Spring Reverb: WetDryMIX: 20%
