Here is an example of 'chord anticipation' over a two chord progression : F7 / Bb7.
The idea is simple: we anticipate the new chord on the last 8th note of each bar. Once you're comfortable with the rhythm pattern, apply it on various chords progressions.
Use the neck pickup and cut the high freqs with the tone knob if necessary.
I use the Mesa Boogie V-Twin preamp on the clean channel connected directly to the sound card and I'm adding a little bit of reverb and compression in the DAW.
