    Soloing Tone Tips for Single Guitar Bands

    You could try a trick I used to use. Don't try to go straight from rhythm to lead, on the same beat. Pick a chord, let it ring out. While ringing, drummer and bass player need to get what would normally be seen as overly busy. It's like a distraction. Don't get in a hurry. Use this time to take...

    Well Dressed or Original?

    I like the look of covers. But tone is the bottom line My #1 live LP has covers #2 does not. Tone with playability a close second. Have seen some beautiful Lester's that either don't feel right to me, or don't. have the tone that makes me want to play.

    So 10's It Is Then

    In the 70's and early 80's played .008's on everything. Moved to .009's and stayed there till around 2002. Reports I've heard have Billy Gibbons playing .007's doesn't seem to bother his tone. But 10's for me. .011" are an acoustic string in my world.
