Good tone is the by-prod­uct of many different fac­tors. The pick you use, the an­gle of at­tack, fret­ting hand touch, fin­ger-pick­ing etc. All these fac­tors will af­fect the sound you pro­duce. Ex­per­i­ment with where and how you pick the string. Angling the pick will pro­duce more at­tack, while hit­ting the string flat on will pro­vide a fat­ter tone. Brian May gets great re­sults from us­ing a six­pence; The Edge turns the pick on its side and strikes the string with the dim­pled grip; Robben Ford turns the pick round and uses the fat end. Try different picks un­til you find one that fits you.
