For this tutorial I'll be using my Martin-style VKV steel-string acoustic, and I'll be getting the sound you hear in the video from a combination of the overhead mic that I'm also talking through and the built-in pickup system in my guitar. As always you have to make sure to use a pick that can handle both the strumming of full chords (so it's can't be too thick) and the single notes (so it can't be too thin). I'm using a medium pick, which almost always gets the job done.
