Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: JAZZ -

Ted played and owned many dif­fer­ent styles of guitar over the years, in­clud­ing an im­pres­sive col­lec­tion of Guild and Gib­son hol­low-bod­ies. But he had a real pas­sion for, and an en­cy­clopaedic knowl­edge of, the Fen­der Tele­caster, favour­ing its ex­tended scale length and per­fect neck pickup place­ment. We’re look­ing at a warm, bal­anced nat­u­ral clean tone with a healthy amount of re­verb. Use fin­gers and re­mem­ber that Ted liked to drop-tune the guitar, of­ten down by a mi­nor 3rd (C#-F#-B-E-G#-C#) to cre­ate a fuller tone when play­ing solo.
