MORE on TONE
Good tone is in the fingers. The more you can ‘squeeze’ the tone from your axe, the more people will want to hear you play. There’s a lot that goes into this of course; more than I can impart in a tip…and I do teach a whole host of playing techniques that improve tone…but it all starts there at your fingertips. You can have the greatest axe and rig in the world and if you can’t get the strings to do your bidding, you’ll never find good tone. With or without a pick, your axe will only produce what you make it produce; everything downstream of your axe is secondary. More on ‘without a pick’ coming up.

Outstanding writing! Look for the light...always.
