Today we're going to use 2 different guitars. Guitar 1 will be a Telecaster played on the bridge position pickup. We're going to dial in a pretty chunky and overdriven tone. We're going for a Marshall kind of sound here and I've got the bass on 4, mids are at 5, and the treble is at 6. You really want to put quite a bit of gain on this guitar because it'll help give the riffs some nice weight.

Guitar 2 is going to be a humbucker guitar and today I'm playing a Univox on the bridge position pickup, pretty much dialing in a very similar tone as guitar 1. Just the fact that I've switched guitars here is enough of a change.

Guitar 3 is going to be the Univox again but I've turned the treble up a bit to give it some more bite, so that the leads will cut through the thick rhythm guitars. You also want to add a touch of reverb for this guitar.
