Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: ACOUSTIC -

Armstrong has played many acous­tic gui­tars over the years from a Guild F50 to a Tay­lor 514C. How­ever, you’ll most com­monly see him with a Gib­son Bil­lie Joe Armstrong J180 acous­tic or a Gib­son J45. For strum­ming and pick­ing parts like these a larger, dread­nought style body will give you the re­quired punch and depth to fill out a mix. I recorded this on a Gib­son J-35 Col­lec­tor’s Edi­tion with a Tele­funken ELAM260 mic.
