Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: JAMMING -

We are cov­er­ing such a range of artists here, many of whom have a wide va­ri­ety of sounds at their dis­posal, so it’s hard to be de­fin­i­tive about tone. How­ever, the clas­sic gui­tars (Fen­der, Gibson) through clas­sic amps (Fen­der, Mar­shall etc.) are in ev­i­dence through­out, and in gen­eral ef­fects are dis­tor­tion, wah, de­lay, vol­ume pedal, tremolo and, in the post-funk styles, en­ve­lope fil­ters. The key here is that play­ers have a con­trol over their sound (through both tech­nol­ogy and tech­nique) so they can re­spond to the evolv­ing jam con­text.
