while we're warming up the right hand, we
wanna also focus on tone because
the tone is a big part of your sound and
the way people identify you.
So, if you notice the position of the
right hand is also very important.
If I'm down by the bridge.
You notice how percussive that can be,
in that, you need, if you want that
definition in the note.
It's definitely a different
sound that if we're up by the neck
Which is much more warm sound, sounding.
So while you're developing your tone,
figure out the position that you
want your hand to be in based on what kind
of song you're playing.
A lot of times if I'm playing a ballad,
I'm gonna be up closer to the neck.
So, okay, I can get that nice warm.
Which is a little different from this.
what we have is different locations on the
neck that you could place
your fingers to determine what your tone
is gonna be.
More percussive down toward the bridge, if
you want that really staccato fingering.
[SOUND] Or if I wanna get the more warm
sound closer to the neck and
And one of the,
[COUGH] one of the ways that I can also
change my tone using the right hand is,
use the fingernail.
And since I rarely use a plectrum, I grow
my nail just long enough so
that it can function as a, as a pick.
So this is without the fingernail, and
then if I add a little fingernail in
A little more distinction in the note.
And that allows me to play, guitar picking
type styles where,
So you can hear that it almost sounds like
I'm using a pick, but I'm really not.
I can also use double picking and, and use
the back of the finger nail.
So I go.
So in those instance where I'm, when I
I can play it with one finger,
So for all those little, kind of,
the funky picking parts or whatever.
there's an example of a song that I used
that in for the intro.
It's a song we recorded with the group
it's called "One on One Eastbound".
