Guitar Techniques - - LESSON | JAZZ -

Earl has quite a col­lec­tion of ny­lon-string clas­si­cal gui­tars, although he favours in­stru­ments built by Paul McGill from Nashville for use on the road. The prin­ci­ple fac­tor in achiev­ing his beau­ti­fully fluid and warm tone is his pick­ing tech­nique, mainly us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of thumb, first and se­cond fin­gers to ar­tic­u­late both sin­gle notes and chords. For au­then­tic­ity, on the au­dio tracks I left the plec­trum be­hind and de­cided to go ‘au na­turel’.
