Billie Joe is like such a h0tti3 huhh!?

he uses like a fender fat strat for his old sch00l songs like on d00kie but on the new skool rockorz like Am3rican IdioT (AI 4 short) he uses da new gibson guitars and plugs it intop delay and echo for like tewh old style classic rock ballads such as boulevard of broken dreams

hope that helped you

From my understanding fat strat in to marshalls and now gibson LP Jr into marshalls

But in reallity if you want his tone you can just plug a squire into a Fab distortion directly into dog **** should work

its not a fender fat strat - it was a fernandes copy and on blvd or broken dreams BJ used a tremolo not a delay for the intro. but yea into marshalls. he uses a gretsch hollowbody of sorts aswell as a gibson les paul junior into marshalls.

Does anyone know any Green Day amp settings? ie. bass treble etc. Especially for the songs: When I Come Around, Holiday.

Isn't it funny how there can't be atleast one Green Day thread without someone taking the piss out of them? lol

^ok, a lot of people would agree, but when someone asks a question, at least have the decency to answer it. Or make your post relevant without flaming the thread

geeze UG sucks. can someone not ask a question about gear inculding their musictastes with out getting flamed? this is reddicoulus. seriously. while green day may be absolutley horrible in your opinion, doesn't mean you have to flame some one else for it. especialy here in the GG&A/EG sections. if you feel like talking about a band, take it to the music section, please. there's no place for it here. you guys flame the hell outa punk/pop rock/nu-metal, including saying they have ****ty tone, when in reality, they use the amps/guitars you WISH you had. so seriously, shut up and answer the guys question, nobody cares if you think greenday suck. it amazes me how immiture and childish some of you act the moment "green day" is mentioned.

i'm with inspired by vai, how does saying

"Green Day Is Crap" add any relevency to the thread? it just makes you look like an immiture twat. if that's all you have to say, don't post and waste my life. please.

now, thread starter, his settups have already been mentioned. and as far as efffects go, there are none really. on blvd. it's stuido magic in the intro. its a guitar track recorded, reversed, then tremlo was added. so you're actually hearing it backwards, if you want to recreate that go ahead, just try some delay, reverb, and tremlo. most people wont know the difference.

As far as I know here is the setup that Billie Joe uses right now. A series of Gibsons, and an old Fender Stratocaster knock off into a Marshall JTM 45.

And I just want to ask what effects you are talking. The only effect I've ever heard in a Green Day Song has been a tremelo (Boulevard of Broken Dreams Intro), and delay used in some of the solo's on American Idiot.

What kind of gear do you have to work with?
#22
Back in the day he used his Fernandes Strat Copy with a SD Hot Rails in the rear pickup plugged into a "hot rodded"(no clue what the modifications were,wish I did though)Marshall which I assume was a plexi though I'm none too certain.
