An electric guitar lesson on how to play “More Than a Feeling” by Boston, guitar solo and fills. This is a full breakdown of the fills and solo including the harmony parts.
Tom Scholz wrote a very melodic and memorable solo here and got just an amazing “wall of guitars” sound. Really nice playing.
The actual licks are not that tough, but it’s the way it was recorded and the production that makes it sound so huge. At one point I count 5 guitars playing the last lick of the solo, add those to the 2 acoustic parts and the 2 electric rhythm parts and yeah, that’s a lot of guitars man!
I get a lot of questions about my tone so here’s what I’m using:
My amp is an Egnater Renegade head through a Marshall 1960b cabinet. I use a TC Electronics Nova System through the loop for effects. On almost all songs I just use a digital delay, roughly 400ms, but some stuff I use tap tempo to set the delay. I also use a BB preamp on most lead tones ( just the amp on this solo) and sometimes (rarely) a Boss CS-3 compressor ( I used the compressor on this solo). The reverb is from the amp.
My wah is a Dunlop MC404 CAE Dual Inductor, REALLY great pedal! I also use a Polytune tuner which is a fantastic.
My guitar is a 1975 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe. I have Suhr Aldrich pickups on it. I use Elixir 10-46 strings.
