David Bowie - Rebel Rebel

Classic tune from the master. This also works on acoustic, but it's originally played on an electric. Scroll down to see the amp settings & how I get this tone! 'Rebel Rebel' TAB sheet here


Amp settings & tone

These days I record the audio for my videos straight into garageband. It's easy to use, sounds great and gives me loads more choices and combinations of amplifiers and effects. Yes it's 'cheating' as it's not using a 'real' amplifier, but for videos and quick recordings - it's hard to fault.

For 'Rebel Rebel', I chose a simulated Vox AC30 with a vintage cabinet, EQ all turned up with an overdrive pedal set to as bright as it will go to get the tone of the main guitar riff.
