Slowing down songs is another great way to learn from records and your song collection. I use Song Surgeon, which works really well for this. Check it out.
Here is a nice patch I developed on the Line 6 HD500. It's a lead tone inspired by SRV and Philip Sayce. It's using a Blackface Deluxe Reverb model, with some Screamer and Fuzz Face added. Sounds awesome!
>> Update! See this video too - it has another cool fuzz face patch I made!
I played an old crappy Squier Strat copy on this clip. However, I upgraded the pickups to these sweet sounding 1950's pickups from Porter Pickups. They sound very sweet through the HD500 and of course they sound fantastic in a REAL amp! Give them a try if you are looking for vintage sounding single coils.
You can download the patch here on the CustomTone website.
I have lots of gear demos too on this site. Go and take a look at some of my Guitar Videos for some examples of gear I use or have used.
Love the fuzz tone. Keep 'em commin'!!!Comment added on December 02, 2012
