Guitar Techniques

Get the Tone


The classic Wes tone comes as much from his use of the thumb a sfrom his choice of an archtop Gibson guitar with flatwound strings and a warm valve amp. Go easy on the reverb and brush through the strings close to or over the neck pickup. Check out videos on YouTube to observe his unorthodox but effortless posture and use a plectrum if you like, as there is so much to learn from Wes from purely a note selection and conceptual perspectiv­e.
