Who do you love (intro)
Quicksilver Messenger Service
Original song by Bo Diddley
-----------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Some notes about the song: It was covered by QMS back in 1967
and was recorded in 1968 for the Happy Trails album. The lead
guitar is performed by John Cipollina. If you want to get his
sound (and the look), you'll need a Gibson SG. He used to have
guitars with one output per pickup, so he could send the bridge
pickup to a Fender Twin Reverb amp, and the neck pickup to a 
Standel bass amp (Standel). His rig was quite complex for that 
very interesting.

I tried to reproduce the tone on this song using my Zoom G2. 
I started from a preset that reproduced Jimmy Page sound, I
modified it to get a more crunchy/bluesy tone. 

Here is the preset (first the effect, then the value for 
each knob), use it as a starting point, it definitely 
needs some tweaks depending on your setup.

* CP: 2/SL/48
* Wah: off
* Noise reduction : 2
* Drive: BL/70/10/80  (BL=Fender Tweed Deluxe'53)
* Eq: 8/2/2
* Cabinet: CB/Co/2/
* Mod: off
* Delay: off
* Reverb: HL/10/5/30

to get a decent tab. Thanks ItsCrozak (damn great playing !)
and QsStellarLemon (great cover, the guy has reproduced a
whole QMS lineup by himself)

Tuning: standard - EADGBE

There are two guitars, the first one being more bassy and used
for the "whale" sounds at the beginning (you can use your
fingers instead of a pick there). 

I know there are some mistakes here, you are welcome to improve
this tab !

"Whale" sounds part, mainly bends on low strings:
