How can I get different tones from my guitar?

Volume Dynamics

"Dynamic" doesn't have to mean "Loud." Experiment with picking notes as softly as possible -- at whisper level. Also try picking with your fingertips instead of the pick, for a rounder tone.

Good tip. Would be great if you covered info for electrics as well ie: pickup selection , vol. and tone knob settings , etc.
