I'm looking to coax the opening clean tone for Emery's 'The Party Song' out of my Mesa F-30.. does anybody have any settings advice (or effects purchase suggestions)? It sounds to me like it's a compressor and reverb, but I can't tell for certain. Thanks in advance, guys.
Part of what you're hearing there is two guitar tracks, but with that in mind a a little compression and reverb and a tele/strat should be all you need. Keep the bass fairly low and turn the gain up high enough so there's a bit of dirt and roll back the guitar volume just a hair.
^+1. At first I thought I heard light chorus but it probably sounds like that because its actually 2 guitars. It sounds like typical Fenderish tone to me, with a lil compression to make it even shinier sounding.
