I don’t know how to describe the way this guitar sounds. This is a video clip of “Happiness Is A Warm Gun” by the Beatles. The “sound” I’m talking about starts right at 0:15 into the song, and ends at 0:44 before the song segues into a different part. It’s obviously an electric guitar, with a staccato-ish punctuation to the lyrics.
What combination of effects/amplification/pickups achieves this sound? It sounds like there’s quite a bit of chorus effect and some obvious distortion. What is the name for this guitar sound?
