Watch the Tones & Gear online guitar lesson by Kelly Richey from Focus On: Blues-Rock Power Trio

Here we'll discuss the importance of your hand technique and how your tone starts there. I'll discuss the main differences between Fender and Gibson guitars, single coil and humbucker pickups, and what impact your selection of guitars has on the development of your effect and amplifier choices. We'll talk about guitar tone, how to select and properly use effects, different amplifiers and speaker configuration - all things that affect your ability to create sustain, texture, and articulation to support the development of your own unique style. I'll talk about how the elements of sound creation impact your playing and ability to perform with the power and confidence you need to find your own voice.

Be sure to visit my “Gear” section on my YouTube page where I have dozens of videos that show the evolution of my pedal board, guitar selection, signal chain, and informative lists of specific gear for you to have as a reference.
