Revolution

Finally came up with a video for Revolution by Hillsong United. After recording I realised that my tone isn't very suitable - using something lighter might help, e.g. less distortion and a single coil guitar. And I think they used a fuzz distortion in the instrumental too.



The riffs in slow-mo, clean tone:



Lastly, thanks to Thomas for his intro tabs.

while I'm watching the DVD, I think one of the Guys the rhythm guitar is using CAPO on 1st fret.

He' using it probably for easier playing by just playin on E.
===============================
I wanna ask something on how to achieve a feedback-like sound or something harmonics-like sound that I am hearing in the verse. (the strumming d#m chord)

Pues primero pon la pedalera en modo manual (busca el botoncito) despues si no me ekicoco el numero dos es para el distorcion (arriba puedes escoger k efecto kieres usar: metal,fuzz,etc) seleciona el fuzz para tu distorcion y luego ve al delay k es el numero 3 si no me ekivoco y arriba puedes puedes manejar el delay ahi debe de haber dos botones uno k dice TAP y no dice nada, apreta el boton k no tiene nada y ahi con la ruedita de arriba puedes buscar las opsiones de tipo de delay y feedback y eso asi k selecciona el feedback a 0% y busca el mix y ponlo a 53% (aunk no creo k tiene mix) pero si no tiene ve donde dice delay time y trata de jugar un poco con eso para k llegues a sacar el sonido de la parte donde va como el tipo solo donde se escucha k el punteo es bn rapido
