Wes Mont­gomery TRACK 5

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: FINGERSTYLE -

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.
