  1. I feel compelled to respond to the’ jazz guitar talk’ podcast.
    Much of what all three were saying I agree with but all perform in ensembles, all are pros and none of them sing. For the vast majority of amatuer guitarists, its a solitary world. We end up pursuing ‘chord-melody’ pieces and get a lot of satisfaction initially, but nobody likes it–! So–we have a go at doing a poor imitation of Julie London/Barney Kessel and bingo–a few do like it ! However, it’s incredibly difficult and there’s no help online that I can find.
    I don’t expect or even want to be as good as Ella/Joe Pass and anyway, that would be too ‘jazz’ for my potential audience. But I just know that the ability to put together some interesting accompaniment for the likes of ‘Misty’ or ‘I’m in the mood for love’ that I could sing to would be very useful.
