The Stone Roses – Something’s Burning

B-side of the ‘One Love’ single from 1990.

I’ve transcribed based upon the way that John Squire played it live during the ‘reunion’ gigs in 2012/13. The version I used is here.


For the audio, I’m using my Tokai Les Paul copy into a DAW using the Overloud TH3 plugin. It’s all played on the rhythm pickup using a Tubescreamer through a Marshall JTM45-style amp with 4×12 cabinet

I also assembled a backing track to play over. The backing track is based on the ‘demo’ version of the song which was released on the 20th anniversary edition of the debut album.
