Get the Tone
You can use pretty much any guitar for the majority of the examples. I used a Gibson ES-335, and my Aylward Selmer-style for the Gypsy jazz examples. For the chords I kept things clean but when you’re dealing with line based ideas you can add anything from a light crunch to full-blown distortion. One thing that we want to keep clean is articulation, so ensure that all notes ring true and that you keep all idle open strings at bay with adequate muting.
