Hi David,

Am busy working my way through your in the style of Brian May lesson which is, as always, excellent.

I have a quick question on the tone you created there. Brian's guitar sound is very distinct and is based on his unusual semi hollow guitar with burns pick ups in series, a treble booster and a Vox AC30 on full power. You seem to have got pretty close to replicating it in the lesson though.

Can you please let me know the settings you used to achieve this... presume you managed it through your POD XT ?

With thanks

Mav

ps - Do you have plans for any more lessons in Brians style. He is my all time favourite guitarist smile.gif

Thanks Mav!
As far as tone goes, I use a Lines 6 Spider 2 amp.
It's kind of old and doesn't have many effects... I used more mids than usually here and added some flnge which helps to get Brian's tone.
I'll make sure to provide more in style of Brian May lessons!
Thanks!
