Hi
It's great to finaly be a member of this good looking jazz forum. My name is Thomas Emilio and I am from Norway. So if there are alot of mistakes in my english you would probably now why. I have been playing guitar for like 4 years and for to years ago I opned my eyes for jazz, after my father played Pat Metheny for me. So since then, Charlie Parker and Keith Jarret had been my source of inspiration to. I am playing a Gibson Les Paul studio, and there is a problem her, because I just can't get the sound right.
Any sugestions on amps and effects that might help me getting the warm jazz tone??

Hello Thomas,

Welcome. Apologies if this is too obvious for you, but have you tried only playing on the neck pickup, turning the treble right down on your amp, and perhaps playing with heavier strings? A lot of people like flatwound strings or D'addario chromes, which sound good and last forever. A set of .12s is a good start.

Hope that helps.
Cheers,
Andy

Hi Emilo nice to greet another norwegian member Laughing
Like yourself I'm a huge fan of Charlie Parker myself. Always fun to transcribe and listen to one of the biggest inovators of bebob. Cool

Anyway hope to see you around and good luck with your guitar playing.
