Well since listening to some jazz i've decided i would like to listen to some more, but not the slow kind, oh no. Kinda sad but the best example i can think of is of the new ipod advert the guys name is something like Wyvern :confused:, but yeah that kind of jazz. I just need some artist suggestions please. I'm look into Django Reinhardt atm. So suggestions are appreiciated.

Thanks! :)

The stuff I have from Pat Martino is pretty fast. I tried learning Oleo but it's not too easy.

Charlie Parker, Wes Montgomery, Oscar Peterson, Chick Corea, Miles Davis, Ornete Coleman, and John Coltrane.

Oh yeah, trust me on this one...

Learn the heads on Confirmation and Donna Lee by Charlie Parker. If you do, you jazz guitar playing skills will definitely increase. Don't be like, "I CAN'T! It's played on saxophone!". Learn it, because bebop guitar can definitely improve your playing.

Check out Miles Davis/John Coltrane @ Newport. "MILES & COLTRANE". This is pretty similar in style to the Wynton Marsalis IPOD commercial tune, which I think is called "SPARKS".

I'm looking for a good Jazz artist such as Mike Stern. I really like his style. The only problem is, it's really hard to find tabs for him.

Can someone recommend an artist like that or maybe give me a link to where I could find some good jazz tabs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I saw the Roy Hargrove band in texas a while ago, they have some of the best improv I've ever seen anywhere for jazz, or in any genre.

And another modern jazz artist would be Eric Alexander, a lot of songs feature his guitar player :D

If you enjoy Django check out Bireli Lagne. Theres plenty of Manouche guitarists. Today I think the style is a bit OVER done. None of the new millenium gypsy jazz groups have any of the real vision Django had. He was a true musician, I heard at the time of his death he was composing a church organ piece.

PM me ill help you out. Gershwin has some cool changes, they pretty much set the standard for jazz to continue,

If you like ambient dance grooves there is some good stuff from Cafe Del Mar, they have a lot of different tunes but there are some rippen jazz tunes.

Roy Hargrove is awesome. His horn arrangements are soooo smooth. I have Hard Groove and a record by soul singer D'Angelo on which he plays a significant role on most songs, along with jazz guitarist Charlie Hunter.
He just released a new album, but i haven't heard it yet.
