Guitar sound and effects

As with most of my youtube videos these days, I used Garageband to get the guitar sound, plugged straight into my computer via a Focusrite 2i2. i do this so I can tweak the sound after recording, or even change it all together. A great little 'real' amplifier that will create a great rock sound is the Blackstar HT-1.

These are the settings I used to get the sound you hear in the video.

Specific effects used are delay and chorus, plus an overdrive pedal.
