why are you looking for seven string jazz as opposed to 6 string? any good reason or just a detuned crappy one?


manly because I play on a seven string guitar, and i want to get a feel for what other jazz players who use seven strings do as far as technique and general use, as well as just something to play on mine. I convert a lot of songs to work on it, but I want to see how they're being used by jazz players. so far the only jazz players I know who use sevens are Freddie Green, John Pizzeralli(sp?), and Jimmy Foster.

Just wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions for Robert Johnson albums.

He just has so much stuff released I don't know where to start.

In a rush of quickness I failed to realize I was looking at songs and not albums. I deserve a smack across the face.

Thanks for pointing this out to me. This will almost complete my collection since I got Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, and the Albert King+SRV albums for Christmas.

Hahah, I know what you mean man.
Sean was a monster.

It Takes Time is probably a better Otis cover than Double Trouble though.

If you ignore the bad sound, this is probably his best take on that track.


Also, can you believe he was just 16 on those first tracks?

I just like the sarcastic lyrics..

They say you can make it if you try.. lawl

God damn, trying to learn Four Till Late by RJ, it's proving pretty troublesome to learn by ear.. I've got the chords down but its just the rhythm and all the fills he does, and the thumb independency ><

And yeah, he's not 16 in all of them, but the ones he is you can hear his voice sounds so different, but his playing is still so on point.. Call The Cops is awesome

Oh yeah. I love them too.

Hahah, RJ is pretty damn hard..... And after you do that, learn to sing falsetto along it...

Yeah the first 3, at least.
His playing is mindblowing, for coming from a 16 year old. (I like Take Me Back more.)

Yeah.. singing... about that. Let's just say it's a work in progress, and I won't be attempting it in front of anyone until i'm satisfied haha

someone recommend me an artist similar to scofield (jazz/funk/blues) something along those lines. so i guess fusion, but something more like miles davis type fusion.

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

Of course there are good jazz and blues bands, thousands of them. Would you go into the rock forum and ask if there are any good rock bands? What kind of a question is this?
#188
I really like Charlie Christian, and from the couple of Barney Kessel songs I have heard, I also liked him. I understand he was (to what extent I don't know) influenced by Christian? Anyway, my question is would you recommend these albums:

"Easy Like / Kessel Plays Standards / To Swing Or Not To Swing / Music To Listen To Barney Kessel By", or just Barney Kessel stuff generally?

I know pretty much nothing about jazz other than what I currently like (which is very limited), so are there any notable jazz guitarists I should be on the lookout for, similar to Charlie Christian?

Thanks in advance.

My guitar teacher has been teaching me blues and he wants me to find a song with that kind of sound, preferrably something I'm familiar with. It doesn't have to be real blues, though, just as long as it has licks that uses the pentatonic or blues scale. If you want to know more about my musical taste, look me up on last.fm with the same screen name. And I'm looking for songs, please, not artists or albums.

'Need Your Love So Bad' (Fleetwood Mac version or maybe Eva Cassidy's take)

'I'd Rather Go Blind' (Chicken Shack/Etta James/Beyonce)

'The Thrill Is Gone' (BB King)

Hopefully that's in the region of what you're after...

I'm not familiar with any of those. My teacher recommended something by Alanis Morisette. Again, not exactly blues but some of the songs use the scales and techniques. I was more thinking along the lines of Tori Amos' songs, but she does more piano stuff. I usually play alternative rock, and I'm looking for something around that genre that is influenced by blues, but not necessary blues itself.
