Spy Vs. SpyNov 21, 2019
I'm beginning to think fingerstyle guitar is the great leveler. I touched on this in an earlier post, quoting jazz guitarist Gene Bertoncini's observation that as guitar players, we like just about anything played on the guitar. One of the reasons I started off my first Friday Music playlist with Guy Van Duser's version of "Black Beauty" is because that recording single-handedly got me interested in jazz. Once I realized it was a Duke Ellington song, I was off to the library to try and find the source. I'm still heading down that rabbit hole decades later.
