Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Jazz -

As none of the fea­tured artists are gui­tarists, you can use any sound you feel is ap­pro­pri­ate for this month’s ex­am­ples – I’ve gone for a va­ri­ety of tones for the au­dio. For a good clas­sic jazz sound, use the gui­tar’s neck pickup with the tone con­trol rolled off to around 3 or 4 (or take the tre­ble down on the amp), and set up a warm clean tone on your amp. Thick strings work bet­ter, as does a hol­low­body gui­tar, but nei­ther is es­sen­tial.
