This song features clean, sparkling electric guitars drenched in reverb for a big sound. I’m playing a Telecaster set for the bridge pickup to give a bright, crisp tone for all the parts in this song. That said, this song can still be played with any electric guitar.

A Fender tube amp is the best choice to replicate the tones in this tune. Dial in a clean setting - set the Preamp Gain to 20%, Bass to 35%, Mids to 50%, and the Treble and Presence to around 60%.

Add some reverb to both guitars to give plenty of space. Since we’re in standard tuning, I’m using 10-46 string gage. I’m also using a heavy pick to dig into these strums and arpeggiations.

SETTINGS:
Fender Twin Model: Gain: 20%, Bass: 35%, Mids: 50%, Treble: 60%, Presence: 60%

Reverb: WetDryMIX: 40%
