Double Vision by Foreigner - rhythm
An electric guitar lesson on the classic "Double Vision" from the album of the same name released in 1978 by Foreigner.
It was their second studio album and was produced by Keith Olsen. He's an excellent producer who's worked with a lot of great bands and artists including Pat Benatar, Heart, Joe Walsh, Starship, Santana, Ozzy Osbourne, Scorpion, Bad Company, and Journey to name a few!
No doubt he had a lot to do with the great guitar sounds on this record.
Mick Jones plays all of the guitar parts on this track and is really a great rhythm player.
There's actually quite a bit more to the guitar parts than first meets the ears.
It's the little subtleties that make a huge difference with this one.
Once you understand the parts, it really works beautiful with the vocals and rhythm section.
A lot of time the secret to getting a BIG guitar sound is keeping the gain down. Guitars with a low gain setting, doubled and panned hard right and left will sound massive and yet still have the clarity without the washed out fizziness of using too much gain.
Very similar to AC/DC where neither Angus or Malcolm use much gain, but together their guitar sound HUGE!
That's how the guitars were recorded on this track. For me, I think they sound awesome!
I had a great time working on this video. This has always been one of my favorite Foreigner tunes and is a gas to play.
I hope that you get something from the video. Cheers
