So here's the story. Admittedly I never listened to that much of the GD. Always been more of a fan of Jerry's guitars than his music. Since joining this forum (which I did really just to find a builder to do a Tiger guitar) I started giving the music a try and am really loving what I hear. I've been playing with the same four guys now for a few months. Last session the singer says he wants to do a few GD tunes. Granted we're hardly a Dead band, but I still like to approximate (as best I can) the guitar tone of whatever artist we're covering. I know there's different eras and tones, so I'm not really sure what to do...plus we'll probably only do two or three songs at most, so I don't want to reinvent the wheel. I like the later tone that I've heard the best, after he got Tiger. I have my Resurrection Bolt that's equipped with the necessary Super II's and I've got the Tiger coming from Leo, so guitar-wise I'm covered (though I realize that's only part).
I have a few basic questions, though.
Was Jerry playing the middle pickup only?
Was the pickup split? To me I sound closer when I split the HB.
Did he use compression?
Did he use and Overdrive?
Was the envelope filter on most of the time or just a few songs?
Sorry to sound like such a friggin' newb...but I guess I am. Appreciate any basic help I can get.
