Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Jazz -

You can use any sound that you feel works for this month’s ex­am­ples, as we go from clas­sic jazz through more mod­ern play­ers. I used my Gib­son ES175 through the Univer­sal Audio Apollo Quad for the var­i­ous tones. 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 op­tion is es­sen­tial.
