    Wow - everytime I see that guy I am blown away. He is so versatile. I'll have to buy one of his CDs to see what his song writing is like.

    I love Guthrie, but I would have preferred him to stay jazz oriented on this.

    Agreed, but it works as a demonstration piece for what seems to be a group of students. Strange hearing him do arpeggios like that, when I saw him live he didn't play a single sweep-picked arpeggio throughout the show. Then again, he didn't do any jazz improv pieces either.

    That was so fun ...
    I kinda wished he would have gotten 'funsion-y' with it by stomping a bit of OD ...

    I was so excitedto click this and hear Guthrie play through some jazz changes. While he sounded great and made the changes, it just wasn't jazz at all for me. The country stuff was cool.

    Still amazing player though.....

    Looks like he got the Tuck Andress instructional DVD. He's a great player. I'd really never heard him but I liked his interview in GP.
    I heard Grissom play Donna Lee one time using octave displacement...so every note was in a different octave. Try that.

    Well, yeah. It's a Charlie Parker tune, but Jaco did a very cool version of it that turned the bass world upside down back in the seventies, which I think is what is being referred to.

    Slight derail: I played that tune at an audition for Busch Gardens in 1989.

    I brought my little tape machine with the comped chords to play along with. The batteries were dying and the chords were about 1/4 step flat from my guitar and it sounded terrible! Needless to say I did not get the gig.

    And yeah, GG is pretty good!

    He doesn't sound as jazzy as Joe Pass or Martin Taylor but Jesus I gotta say that's still damn good. What can't he play????
