Not so much a lesson in technique or style as tone chasing…
As much as I love a cranked up vintage or modern amplifier, that’s not often practical and I’ve come to almost prefer just using a basic, clean tone, plus some pedals to get me where I want to be.
In this video, I’ll show you how I approach using multiple overdrive pedals for various levels of gain for rhythm or lead playing, on either a Strat or Les Paul style guitar.
My Rat is modified by Modest Mike at https://modestmikesmods.com and I highly recommend his mod. I prefer it even to the other modded Rats I’ve tried over the years (which is a lot of them.)
BUT, don’t feel like you need modded or special pedals to do this. A stock Blues Driver, Tube Screamer, and Rat will all do you just fine and I used stock pedals for years before these mods became so common.
