#05: Clapton: P1 Doublestop Bend

This Eric Clapton style lick is a real classic! 


Getting The Sound

For this lick I'm using a Fender Stratocaster (1989) into a Fender Super Champ (old valve one from 1983 designed by Rivera, not the current model) recorded with a Shure SM57 microphone.

Guitar Settings
I used the neck pickup with the volume and tone all the way up.

Amp Settings
'Exact settings' even if you have the same amp and guitar will probably not sound exactly the same... I kept the amp pretty clean nothing exciting. My settings (to use as a starting point): Volume 5, Treble 4, Bass 8, Reverb 3, Lead N/A, Master Volume 3.

Pedal Settings
I used my Nobels ODR-1 for this one, approx settings: Drive 5, Spectrum 4, Level 7 - just trying to make it sound like an amp being driven hard, not really 'distorted'.
