Haha I don't know if anyone here can help me with this but I figure I might as well try...
I am a guitar player. Long story short, I need to play the freebird solo by lynyrd skynyrd and make it sound proper pretty fast. I know the first thing I need is a slide. My first question is, what slide would be best for this song? I think a chrome or maybe bronze would be best, but I am really not sure. Also, I think that the amp they use in the real song has an effect on their sound. I am pretty sure they used some kind of peavey stack. What I am wondering is, would getting some kind of effects processor that can simulate the peavey be good enough? A third question related to that second question, are there any effects that they use in the song outside of distortion? And what kind of distortion is it they use exactly? I am hoping there is an effects processor out there that can simulate the amp and effects they use all in one for me.
My current setup: Standard (Mexican) Fat Strat w/ Fender Frontman 25R (25 watts)
Thanks for your help.
