Starting my new Weekly Blues Lick series is a great lick from Stevie Ray Vaughan. Love this lick, sounds great and can be easily manipulated into lots of different licks!

Getting The Sound

For this lick I'm using a Fender USA Stratocaster (1989) into a Fender Super Champ (old valve one from 1983 designed by Rivera, not the current model) recorded with a Shure SM57 microphone.

Guitar Settings
To get the sound I used Position 2, the blend of the neck and middle pickups, I have no idea if this is what SRV used, but it sounded closest to the reference track. Volume right up. Tone right up.

Amp Settings
Getting the sound for this is a lot about the Reverb! Turn it up :) lots of verb here and it really adds depth to the lick. You'll have to experiment with your Reverb box and just see where it sounds good on yours. The EQ settings (Bass, Middle, Treble) will be different on your guitar than it was on mine, my 2 strats sound incredibly different so 'exact settings' even if you had the same amp would not be very accurate... but my settings (for use as a starting point): Volume 6, Treble 7, Bass 8, Reverb 7, Lead N/A, Master Volume 3.
