The Black Keys, "Lonely Boy" guitar lesson. Today we're using 3 pedals, a Boss Harmonist for the intro dive bomb, a Wampler Tweed '57 for the overdrive and a Malekko Lofi E616 MKII for some slapback echo. Dan Auerbach use the S-Bend mode on his Boss PS-6 to take the low E down an octave, a simple 'trick' that makes this song so recognizable. Although accomplished with fuzz, the Wampler Tweed '57 lays down a raw foundation with a fuzz like texture that can cover the whole song. Lonely Boy also has a firm slapback echo in the 3 chord verse and the Malekko Lofi Ekko 616 MKII can easily manage with a strong analog repeat full of warbling vibrato. Enjoy your daily guitar lesson.
