Any electric guitar is suitable to play this tune. Be sure to select the bridge pickup for more power and clarity.

As far as amps go, any Marshall-style tube amp is a fine choice. Set the amp for a light crunch. Set the Drive to 50%, Bass to 45%, Mid to 65%, Treble to 70%, and Presence to 70%.

For Guitar 2, either crank up the preamp gain on your amp, or kick in a booster/overdrive pedal to create more gain and sustain for the leads.

Add some reverb for depth.

I used a 10-46 string gage, with a heavy pick so I can dig right into those riffs and licks with some attack and attitude!

Here are the settings I used:

Marshall Plexi Model:
Drive: 50% Bass: 45% Mid: 65% Treb: 70% Presence: 70%
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 45%
