Different Guitar Choices

Different guitars have different sound qualities.

I am currently working on the song, “Over the Rainbow.”

This song is a popular request for wedding ceremonies and wedding cocktail hour music.

I am currently in the process of making a YouTube video playing the song using the guitar that I think is best suited for my interpretation of the song. I chose my Gibson ES-125 hollow body electric jazz guitar because of it’s deep, mellow tone. It’s a vintage instrument and matches the sound of one of the greatest standards of all time.

After playing the tune on my other two jazz guitars, Gibson’s ES-175 and Hagstrom’s HL550, I decided that these twoinstruments produce a more modern sound, better suited for other tunes.
