Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: JAZZ -

As we’re deal­ing mainly with con­cep­tual ideas here, you can use pretty much any guitar you like. I used a Benedetto Bravo, a hol­low body jazz guitar with flat­wound strings, although you can achieve per­fectly work­able re­sults with any guitar on the neck pickup. Pick a lit­tle closer to the neck to warm the tone up and set your am­pli­fier to a clean tone with a small amount of re­verb and you’re good to go. A heavy-ish pick helps also and aim to have the ac­tion not so low that you get fret buzz, a fac­tor that can of­ten be dis­guised by dis­tor­tion.
