My favorite take on that tune was always Lenny Breau's version on the Live at Shelly's Mann Hole album from around 1967. That and Bluesette.

Lenny Breau, a criminally undermentioned musician... John Scofield has a pretty killer version or two, as does Mike Stern...

I recently recorded the audio for a video of a guy playing bach's chromatic fantasy and Fugue on a harpsichord. A top musician with years of experience. When he came to the studio for us to choose between the different takes, he forgot to bring his own score. Luckily I had it here also, so we ended...

Greg and I created StaffTab to show specific arrangements of songs and to teach specific string tapping skills. You could call it cluttered but it's "packed" with six parameters of information per bar, including the standard pitch notation, time and duration, and expression, but also fing...

You can think of StaffTab the same way you might think of finger markings on a piano chart. They're generally put there by the publisher. Some publisher's editions are better than others. Some publishers are considered more advanced and will leave the fingerings off operating under the assumption t...

I thought it might be a valuable discussion, as notation is literally everywhere, and Piano scores in particular are everywhere (I know Stick is not a piano, but piano sheet music is readily available, making it a very useful resource). As someone who threw himself at the wall of "how you're su...

Also, one of the things I love about trying to create modal music like this (that plays off of any of the modes within a key signature) is all of the modal colours get touched on.

Or they have all migrated to somewhere else haha I really liked this, I am thinking it's a snippet of some practicing? I really liked it once it got into the classical bit, but all of it cont...
