Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: JAZZ -

If ever there was proof that the tone is in the fin­gers (or thumb!) it’s here, as Jim typ­i­cally favours a mod­est bud­get Aria hol­low body FA51 for live use, sav­ing his posh Andy Crockett Arch­top for stu­dio dates, usu­ally DI’d straight into the desk. Live, for many years he used a 65-watt Gal­lien-Krueger bass amp, re­cently switch­ing to an equally por­ta­ble AER Com­pact 60 combo de­signed for acous­tic guitar. Es­sen­tially, we’re af­ter su­per-clean, loud and warm and don’t for­get to leave your plec­trums in your pocket.
