Need help with "tone" -- Top Gun Anthem ??
Some of you may laugh. But bearing in mind I'm still a beginner, every now and then I need to find some "easy" piece of music to try just to boost the confidence after hitting a wall on something trickier.
So yesterday I thought of the Top Gun anthem to try.
As mentioned, its not a difficult piece to play. But... where I'm scratching my head is with trying to approximate the right guitar tone to sound like the original.
I don't have a lot of gear yet obviously, and I have no idea what was used for the original recording. I was using my RG20th and my Roland Cube 30X amp,which has a few built in effects and amp models. Aside from that I've got a couple pedals (DS-1 and DD-3), which I didn't use.
For some reason I couldn't get anywhere close to a near-sounding tone. (Bizarre since previously I haven't had any trouble getting somewhere in the ballpark for the following tones: Satch, AC/DC, GnR, etc.).
Any suggestions? Thanks.
