Yeah, experimenting is the key!

This are some ideas with less common guitar tones, maybe not for this one but for future ones. I know that this is not your style at all but maybe you can get some ideas.

I was actually listening to some Queen of the Stone Age for tone ideas, came up with this twangy/overdriven sound using some tape distortion.

Do you know what other songs/bands have this kind of tone? I was thinking disco or funk most of that seems too clean.

I tried double tracking it too but it always ended up too chorusy since it's single notes, so I've just got the one mono guitar in the middle with reverb/delay. Will to be weird if I switch to panned double tracking half way through the track just for a solo section?

Hi mate, have you tried any Fuzz pedal?

This type of sounds are usually achieved with tube amps, and analog pedals so it takes some work to emulate them with digital stuff. There are many bands that use this type of sounds: White Strypes, Jack White, Artic Monkeys, Royal Blood, Fumanchu, and most of the Stoner Bands. I also think that some Nine Inch Nails could bring ideas.

Just gotta spend some time working on transitions between each section and some balancing/pan issues. Especially in the funky clean section at 0:30 and solo at 0:56.

First time I've ever used this kind of amp breaking cleanish lead tone for solos, love the way it sounds but I've gotta be super careful with how hard I pick or it gets really harsh sounding.

hahaha I love Rick & Morty! This will be a hit!

The whole thing is great! The tone exploration has been great to get a very fresh mix and I think that it turns fantastic at 00:59 with those Chon/Polyphia style arrangements. If it weren't possible, I would add some of that stuff sooner in the mix. Maybe any chord or lick that introduces earlier the modern math style.

Would've liked to have more of that Polyphia style stuff throughout but I was stuck with the arrangement whenever vocals were going; if you listen close enough at some parts you can still hear the original instruments getting through.

Gonna definitely try and incorporate more of those mid-gain leads into my covers from now though!

This is fantastic mate! I love it. It's interesting to see how you experimented with tone for this one. The result is very fresh and organic. I would really like to see you making more stuff like this. Both the riffing and the Polyphia style solo are epic.

Great job!!!
