In this lesson I’m taking a look at 3 of my favourite riffs from Gang of Four’s Andy Gill. Tab/music can be found below. For a high-quality, downloadable PDF click here.
Get The Sound
According to my research Andy Gill’s famously abrasive guitar sound on Entertainment was achieved by plugging a Fender Strat into a solid state Peavey Classic amp. As usual, in my video I’m just trying to get reasonably close to the right sound with the gear I have. So I’m using my 52 Reissue Tele into an 80s Fender Super Champ. Distortion comes from a Mooer Black Secret distortion pedal, set quite bright with a medium level of gain. A lot of the sound comes from your your hands and fingers though, so give it some attitude and play hard!
