Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: JAZZ -

Syl­vain is a Godin en­dorsee, us­ing Multiac ny­lon and steel-string elec­tro-acous­tic mod­els and a P90-equipped hol­low­body arch­top, DI’d or via an AER acous­tic amp. I em­u­lated his elec­tric tone here; use what­ever you’ve got, although you’ll need a cut­away to get to the higher frets. Luc chooses round wound strings with wound third, and fur­ther bucks con­ven­tion by of­ten se­lect­ing the bridge pickup, par­tic­u­larly for har­mon­ics and funky parts. His picks lightly, but this pro­vides a per­fect dy­namic bal­ance with his flaw­less fin­ger­pick­ing tech­nique.
