Hey guys im a gigging drummer and have recently started to play guitar , i have this old 3/4 size acoustic at the moment but my parents have bought me a squier strat for my b day and am really enjoying learning. So far after a couple hours of practise i can play Californication, Stadium arcadium main riffs and the intro to otheside by the chilis. I know he has alot of fan boys but john frusciante is my biggest influence in music and guitar , he is the guy who made me want to pickup a guiatr but i Like his playing anywhere from the chilis , solo and ataxia . Also with my guitar how would Be able to get is sound from it and the amp im getting is a small marshall not sure what series etc etc and if it helps what pickups would be wort upgrading to in the future to get this sound. Thanks anyways.
Liam

I hope the amp you're getting isn't an MG. You'll regret it. Get a Roland cube instead. Great modeling amps.

Yeah, man, don't go for a cheap Marshall, the MGs are horrid and the MAs aren't much better(I found out the hard way, high-end Marshalls are dreams, but the low-ends...). I'd go for a Cube like Kutless said, Fender Mustangs are really nice for the price too(I don't know how to work them very well but I got a few nice tones with the presets). As for Frusciante's tone, I'd turn the treble and mids up and use the bridge pickup, but I'm not exactly sure how his tone works, I'm a casual RHCP listener but I don't play it. xD Best of luck to you, my good man, welcome to the guitar clan. xD

Nah, I prefer to tune lower. My tunings usually go into weird Hebrew symbols.

If you are after Frusciante's sound then you might also want a decent effects pedals or multi-effects board as I know in some songs he uses over 3 to 4 different effects as an example on Dani California he uses wah, a bit of chorus, distortion and I think also a touch of phase if I remember right and not all modelling amps come with those effects. So look at a decent amp and get some effects pedals.

Get the cube 15x. You can find them used for under $50 if you look hard enough. It sounds better than the MG.
