It’s been almost a month since I posted a Jim Hall solo! Jim has quickly risen through the ranks to be one of my favorite guitarists. There’ll be much more of him in the future.
Welcome to the site, Vimeo. YouTube just didn’t have the video and for once you do! You’re a shining star.

This is the partner piece for John Pizzarelli’s solo posted one week ago (found here).
It’s another quiet week with no video to accompany the post… *Cough* Anyone bring their iPod?

Regulars to the site know that I think very highly of John Pizzarelli’s “My Blue Heaven” album. This solo had a large impact on my playing style and is a very early transcription of mine.
Wish there was a video on YouTube for everyone to listen to this great song…

This week = me being busy. That means I’m going to post a bass line. Hey, jazz guitarists need to study bass lines as well!

Luckily I caught myself before publishing this post that Chuck Wayne is not playing this solo. It’s Dick Garcia! I’m not all that familiar with him, so… here you go. A great solo by Dick Garcia.

Due to me devoting all my time to other activities this month, I’m giving you a teeny tiny little short solo by Les Paul. I’d rather post the melody he plays, but that’s suing territory for whoever owns the publishing rights to the song… oh well…

Spring is here, there’s no mistaking that it’s time to post a Johnny Smith solo. ‘S Wonderful is from the album “Walk, Don’t Run” (the only JS album I own for some reason…) and it’s a fast one.
YouTube doesn’t seem to have a video for this… Well, the music speaks for itself (assembly required). Maybe I should start checking for videos before I write out three choruses.
Anyways, get my transcription of Johnny’s solo after the break!
