Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Blues -

Joe tends to play gui­tars to suit a song, so don’t be sur­prised to see nu­mer­ous changes dur­ing a set. His tastes are tra­di­tional, favour­ing Gibson ES-335, or Les Paul types for cleaner to mod­er­ate over­drive set­tings, while for Hen­drix type rock tunes he reaches for a Strat. He has used Fen­der and Mar­shall combos, so aim for a good qual­ity valve amp, set quite loud with a rel­a­tively flat EQ, chang­ing dy­nam­ics with the pick­ing hand and vol­ume con­trol. Per­haps add an over­drive pedal for those Hen­drix mo­ments.
