James Brown had the best guys in his bands and this song has the legend Catfish Collins (brother of bass legend Bootsy Collins) on guitar playing a super cool part!

Guitar
For this lesson I'm using my Suhr Classic with pickup selector in position 4 (split bridge humbucker and middle together). The orginal sounds more like a Telecaster to me, but there's still a strange electronic interference at my studio and my tele picks it up too much!

Amp
I'm using the Kemper Profiler for this lesson using the 62 Luxe Reverb profile by M Britt.

Effects
Just a bit of reverb in the Kemper.
