To play "I Fought the Law," we will be using two guitars throughout the song with a third one coming in during the solo/bridge section.

- Guitar #1 is our main guitar, playing throughout the whole track holding down our steady rhythms. This guitar is the nucleus of the song, and is played using a start with a humbucker pickup with a nice overdrive tone that is sensitive to the dynamics of the song.

- Guitar #2 is our lead guitar, switching to a full on dual humbucker guitar with a more overdriven tone and some reverb. This guitar covers all of our main lead melody lines.

- Guitar #3 only comes in during the bridge, playing with a similar tone to Guitar #2 playing some harmony lines and bends to create a nice wall of guitar sound for the bridge.
