    Can someone please help me out. I can't figure out how to make the guitar sound of Follow You Follow Me from Genesis. I have enough pedals (o.a. Time factor and H9) and know what to play, but I just can't get the sound right.
    I guess it is a clean guitar signal with a delay and a flanger. Can someone advice me on how to setup the delay (what delay, which settings?).
    Thank you so much,
    Ed

    Digital delay, dotted eighths; flanger with slow rate, wide range, lots of regen.

    That is a complicated sound, there is a flanger and delay. The trick is that the dry sound is on the left and delay on the right (with more/different flanging?), giving a really cool sound and rhythm. I think the delay should be set at dotted eights but not exactly sure.

    Also a compressor will really help bring out Mike Rutherford's muted picking techniques, as on The Living Years. I sent him one last week, hope he's using it in the UK tour now.
