Get the tone

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON -

Louis was a tra­di­tion­al­ist, favour­ing a hol­low­body arch­top on the neck pickup, with flat­wound strings into a small, clean combo. Much of his huge warm sound came from his pick­ing tech­nique, most of­ten close to the neck with a slight tilt to the pick so that when ex­e­cut­ing down­strokes it al­most comes to rest on the next string down. This sets the string in a wide el­lip­ti­cal vi­bra­tion pat­tern and makes the sound rounder and big­ger. Try it.
