Any guitarist who browses TikTok will have probably noticed Fender’s ongoing campaign, in which they highlight players of interest at all levels of career success. One of those is Rory A. Green, who Fender described as “bringing all the good vibes” in January.

“I’ve had so many people ask me about the reverb in this video,” he laughs of his tone in the clip. “I was using the Line 6 HX Stomp for my amp and reverb sounds, specifically the Particle Verb.”
