Keb' Mo' Explains His Signature Guitar Sound

05/11/2012
.
(Gibson) Guitarist and singer Keb' Mo' is known for his traditional acoustic blues jams and soulful style. Guitar-wise, Mo', above all, is a fan of the acoustic guitar, and his latest album, The Reflection, has the bluesman interpreting blues, jazz and rock through his prized Gibson Bluesmaster.

When it comes to Mo's playing style, he says the best guitarists don't emulate anyone else. They have their own voices. When asked how to get that signature "Keb' Mo'' sound, he explained to Gibson.com, "Well, the first thing is not to worry about my sound and just play the guitar, and your own sound will emerge. The guitar and you become one.

"When another person picks the same guitar up, it actually becomes a different instrument, because it's connected to that person. But, you can emulate someone else's sounds and use that as an inspiration." more on this story
