Hi everybody, guitar player here. Any fellow six-stringers have any idea what kind of effects Paul uses on the rock version of "Crackle and Drag"? Could be a phaser, not sure. I don't really use many effects but I think that one just sounds cool as hell.
It must be the pickups in his guitar that give his sound a sometimes harsh distortion tone. usually with tubes, it's a little smooth and warmer tone, don't you think? Think of the tone on "Pinebox"---that doesn't sound really warm like tubes to me. But like I said, it could be his pickups.
