I’m using a Strat style guitar for this song, but any electric guitar is suitable. Select the combination of the bridge and middle pickup for a crisp, phasey sound.

As far as amps go, any Fender style tube amp is a desirable choice. Set the amp for a clean sound. Set the Drive to 20%, Bass to 40%, Mid to 50%, Treble to 60%, and Presence to 65%.

The guitar uses chorus and hall reverb to create a dreamy sound. For the staccato strum parts, click off the reverb for a more direct sound.

I’m using 10-46 gage with a heavy pick to dig into these strums and arpeggiations.

Here are the settings I used:

Fender Deluxe Model:
Drive: 20% Bass: 40% Mid: 50% Treb: 60% Presence: 65%
Chorus:
Rate: 40% Depth: 60% Wet/DryMIX: 50%
Hall Reverb:
WetDryMIX: 45%
