Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: CHROMATICS -

As we’re deal­ing mainly with con­cep­tual ideas here, you can use pretty much any gui­tar, even an acous­tic, for the ma­jor­ity of the ex­am­ples pre­sented here. I used a Gibson ES-335 through­out in Gui­tar Rig 5. As we’re deal­ing with pre­dom­i­nantly sin­gle-note line based ideas you can add over­drive if you wish à la Al­lan Holdsworth or Bryan Baker, or go for the clean route, just like Pat Metheny or Pat Martino. The one thing that we al­ways want to keep clean how­ever is ar­tic­u­la­tion, so en­sure all notes ring true and that you keep all idle open strings at bay with ad­e­quate mut­ing.
