    How do I sound like Stephen Stills (Sweet Judy Blue Eyes)?

    I would like to have that sound with my own guitar. It sounds like he is using something that sounds like a phaser. I'd like my own sound, but that really sounds full and I was wondering if anyone knew his setup back then. Thanks. I'm not talking about the tuning or strings. I was more curious about what amp he used and if any effects.

    I think that's just playing style...the way he is strumming while also maintaining that low string drone.

    Back in '69...there weren't too many pedals, and I doubt he was using a phaser or any kind of effect.

    IIRC Open tuning, possibly capo'd and possibly Nashville tuned 12 string, but i bet a Google search will get you a more definitive answer.

    Its a weird tuning. EEEEBE. It makes the drone work!

    I have an old Yamaha acoustic tuned EAEEBE and it works as well.

    I"m not talking about the alternate tuning if any or strings. The tone of his guitar. The amp, the effects.?

    There's an interview about Suite Judy Blue Eyes on Sound-on-Sound. Start with a Martin D28 and a U67.
