Wes Montgomery TRACK 5
Wes had a unique approach to playing the guitar and the results he achieved were simply mind blowing. Wes used the thumb of his picking hand almost exclusively to pluck the notes. This example showcases his trademark use of Example 6 - Wes Montgomery octaves. Brush the strings with the flesh off your thumb, and use fretting hand muting to keep the octaves clean. Play the eighth notes with down strums, and the fast passages with a combination of down and up strums.
