Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Jazz -

Grant Green pri­mar­ily used a Gibson ES330, a Gibson L7, an Epi­phone Em­peror and a D’Aquisto New Yorker Deluxe. For amps he favoured a late-‘50s tweed Fen­der Twin, a Gibson LP12, and var­i­ous Am­pegs at var­i­ous times. He got his sig­na­ture tone by push­ing the midrange and turn­ing the tre­ble and bass right down on his amp. To em­u­late his sound, use a hol­low­body gui­tar (ideally) with flat­wound strings (and a wound third), roll the tone off to around 6 or 7 and use a clean valve amp which is just hint­ing at break­ing up.
