How do you get sound like something likethis ?

Do you have to add a bit of overdrive or anything? Any tips?

it`s just a cranked tube amp, chuck berry used no effects for Johnny B goode.

on a SS amp try having the gain below 2

A semi hololow guitar and any device you can muster to dampen the strings and eliminate sustain of any kind. I have seen felt saddles and bits of tissue to deaden the strings. Cranking a 50s Gibson amp is an idea too.

He didn't use any effects? It sounded more like it with a bit of overdrive with my power amp.

No, it was just a low-power tube amp cranked up.

It was 1958. The only effects were cranking the volume and playing with a torn speaker. Effect showed up in 1962.

Turn an amp up so loud your mommy threatens to ground you and make sure you put extra force in the pick attack.

It might be a little hard to get that sound out of just any old solid state amp, but you can get close. Use really low gain or put it on the clean channel and use an overdrive pedal. Make sure you pick really hard too.

Thick strings and picks help, Chuck used a guitar with humbuckers, but i get a good Chuck-esque sound out of the bridge pickup on my Strat. Basically anything vintage-toned, with tubes, and turned up will do it.
