Before we start digging into all the playing, let's briefly talk about the gear and tones I'll be using for these examples. For these examples I'm going to keep it really simple with my good ol' Telecaster on the bridge pickup going straight into a modeled version of a small Fender tube amp.

I have the volume quiet enough that it only overdrives or â€"breaks up” as it's often called a little bit. All the EQ's are set at 5 which is the same as 12 o'clock and the reverb is set at 2 and a half out of 10. So nothing fancy here, just your basic twangy country tone.
