I'm using a Les Paul guitar for this song, but any electric guitar will do the trick. The tones have more to do with the amp settings.

As far as amps go, any Fender-style tube amp is a fine choice. Set the amp for a clean tone. Set the Drive to 30%, Bass to 45%, Mid to 50%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 65%.

Add some reverb for depth. You might notice the guitars heard in the intro of the original recording are soaked with reverb. Once the groove kicks in, the reverb disappears to much lower levels. You can approximate this by kicking in a reverb pedal for just the intro, then clicking it off for the rest of the tune.

I used a 10-46 string gage, with a heavy pick so I can dig right into those arpeggiations and leads with some attitude.

Here are the settings I used:


Fender Deluxe Model:
Drive: 30% Bass: 45% Mid: 50% Treb: 60% Presence: 65%
Spring Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 25%
Chamber Reverb (Intro only):
WetDryMIX: 60%
