Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Jazz -

Not all the play­ers this month are gui­tarists, plus some are more fu­sion that straight jazz in style. So you can go for any sound that suits your taste as long as it’s not too over­driven. For a clas­sic jazz tone, use the 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.
