For this song you want to use a basic clean tone with some added reverb. I'll be using my Gibson 335 on the bridge pickup, which gives me a slightly darker sound because of the humbuckers. If you use a guitar with single coils, you should be careful not to get too much treble in your tone. You want this guitar part to stay in the background and also sound kinda jazzy. So if you're using a guitar with single coils you can either use a neck or a middle pickup or roll off some treble on your amp. You can also try rolling a little bit of tone off on your tone pot. Again the goal is to get a jazzy, clean tone with a medium amount of reverb.
