May I pick your brains for a minute?
How would you dial in this sound:
I play a very similar guitar (Gibson Les Paul Special TV Yellow with P90s), so I should be able to dial it in quite closely.
I know Gary Clark Jr. usually plays a Vibro King and a Princeton, but that doesn't mean he used that in this video, too.
I'm not talking about the wah at the beginning but his fat rhythm tone (which I guess is a solo tone).
Gary Clark Jr. uses Fuzz pedals as well, I guess Hendrix used his Fuzz Face on the original. I also have a Tone Bender in the home studio and of course, there is the Kemper Fuzz, too.
Would you pick a Clean Fender profile and add a gainy fuzz? How clean would you set it?
Or would you pick a pushed Marshall and add low gain fuzz just for the sound coloration?
I feel there's more going on here, some sort of compression, maybe?
Do you think the wah is activated during the entire song or turned off after the intro?
What kind of reverb, delay can you hear? I'm still in the process of training my ears.
I have the feeling I can get close but it's just not quite there. If I use the amount of gain he uses I lose clarity. Maybe he has a gainy setting but the volume on his guitar is rolled back?
Hobby guitarist here, so I'm hoping to get some pro tips.
