  • Welcome to the Stoner for Strat lesson #2!

    Idea of this lesson is to combine massive and powerfull, stoner groove with specific, "bottle" type of strat neck pickup tone. Harmonic content is blues and classic rock based. Main focus is to get familiar with wide palette of dynamics, articulation and some classic licks, commonly used in blues and rock.

    Single coil neck pickup is highly recommended. Because of totally different response to articulation, humbucking pickup can block you on your way to get THIS exact variety of tones. In other words...you may loose your good attitude while trying to get things done on a thing that will not make you able to, no matter how much you try...and it not would be your fault.

    As for AMP tone...
    Good startting point is any kind of old Marshall simulation - often called plexi, super lead or 1959, british crunch etc... in fx devices/plug-ins presets. Be carefull with gain amount. The more gain, the worse translation of hand dynamics.
