Improving tone with technique
« on: April 19, 2008, 09:31:10 pm »
I've heared that a lot of your tone comes from your fingers, but HOW to you improve it? Just working on scales, chords and arppeggios ain't going to improve my tone sounds so what will?? Any one here got any suggestions or ideas on what I can do to improve the tone from my fingers?

Try going back to the basics: chords and single note stuff. I find that sometimes if I'm practicing, I'll play a G chord over and over again, making sure each note is pure and crisp.

Years of playing man, years of playing, I've met people who play for a few months even a year or two trying to be a hero, that doesn't work. Take for example how many years have paul been playing, and he is still getting better, tonally and technically.
