Get The Tone
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.
