Seen them live in my hometown Bergen, Norway.

Pat Metheny, Frank Gambale, Wes Montgomery, John Abercrombie,
Mike Stern, Django Reinhardt...

But I dont just listen to guitar players of course some of the other big stars
of jazz also. Miles, Stan Getz, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Eberhard Weber,
Michael Brecker, Herbie Hancock...

I like some cool piano jazz like some of the songs from Herbie Hancock.
Herbie Hancock is amazing... I feel like a bad musican when thinking
on someone like him. They must be aliens from another galaxy.
Just like Satriani and Steve Vai :wink:

Hmmm.. why didn't my parents force me to take piano lessons when
I was 3... hehe

Tribal Tech is amazing, but I like Vital Tech Tones better. Even though these bands are great they are fusion based more then Jazz.

Yes we did.

Has anyone here heard of John Etheridge? He's an accomplished player and he played in our local pub the other day! what really impressed was that he'd strung up one guitar with bass strings on the low E and A and was playing walking bass lines at the same time as the jazz chords and lead runs. I chatted to him afterwards and he's a very nice guy as well.

Charlie Hunter is another jazz guitarist I'm getting very into at the mo.

Grant Green is great, too. Something about his simplicity and note choice that I just really like.

Since we've mentioned Scott Henderson we might as well include his blues albums especially his recent Live album which amalgamates blues, jazz, rock and some things we can't even define yet all in one bubbling pot. Someone called it bluesion which is a good term; in the realm of blues it's got everything in there, african blues, arabian blues, far eastern blues, slide blues, jazz blues, doggy blues, hillbilly blues, Van Halen blues, crazy mofo blues and just BLUES blues...

Remember Wolf Marshall? He who did some excellent transcriptions
of Satriani etc back in the 80's and 90's.

I believe he is more into jazz and blues today. He have a book
called "BEST OF JAZZ GUITAR". It have some very nice transcriptions
of some great jazz guitar songs. Even some of the legendary jazz
players have comments about the book and how well the transcriptions
are. All songs are also included on the CD.

I am not so much into jazz playing but it is ok to study a little and
pick up some jazz licks to use.

Link to the book and his website.

No one has mentioned Pat Martino yet he is a jazz legened and still going check out one of these albums

Desperado- Abstract 12 string crazyness Early stuff
Consensnous- Some say Pat at his peak befor brain surgery
Live at yoshi's- This is what he is post brain sugery stuff newer
Thinktank- what I call the Harlem, philidalphia urban sound pretty new

Pat Martino hit the seen in the 60's influenced by Wes. Pat Martino is an agressive experimentalist with amazing technique and style still pretty straight ahead though not as out there as Dimeola in style relative to most jazz. In the 80's he had Brai surgery and amnisha but made a meraculas comeback relearning to play. He rips lick Methaney but more aggresively with monster attack you can hear Mattino in methaney check him out.

I think Pat Martino had an anuerism, and that's why he had to relearn everything on guitar.

Some people say he'll never be as good as he was before... :cry:

I think he is as good not techniques wise but in taste style and control he did have an anuerism, and after having surgery to have it removed he came out of it with amnisha and had to relearn guitar and music it is amazing that a person can get to that level within a life time but anyone who does it twice is really amazing many people would have given up.
