Request: Funky, poppy, 70's, strat tones (George Duke - Reach Out)


New Member
Hi all

I'm covering George Dukes: "Reach Out" with my band, and I can't seem to get the rhythm guitar sound that I want. I'm going for this live version guitar sound:

My best bet is something like a Fender Twin Reverb, some pretty specific compresser settings, and some chorus.

Does anyone know how to get something similar?

I already have the single coil equipped strat.

The tone you're after made me think of something I'd been messing about with last night.
It isnt a direct attempt at your tone, the chorus is nothing like your tone, but it's a good starting point

Miss George Duke...he was greatly responsible, pre pop/jazz/funk success, for some of Frank Zappa's most inspired music......

Forgot to say that this was done on my AX8, so you may need to run it through Fractool to convert it


I thought to post of using that sound to play James Gang "Funk 49". Is it possible to post audio to this forum?
