This tune features big sounding crunch guitars for a thick sound. I’m playing a Les Paul set for the bridge pickup to give a bright, clear tone for all the parts in this song. That said, this song can still be played with any electric guitar.

A Marshall tube amp is the best choice to replicate the tones in this tune. Dial in a crunch setting - set the Preamp Gain to around 75%, Bass to 50%, Mids to 55%, Treble to 55%, and Presence to 60%.

Guitars 2 & 3 use a talk box for a distinct effect for the leads. This effect can be approximated by using a wah wah pedal or an auto filter pedal such as a Mutron.

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

Marshall JCM 800 Model:
Gain: 75%, Bass: 50%, Mids: 55%, Treble: 55%, Presence: 60%
Reverb: WetDryMIX: 25%
