His detailed, interpretive jazz style and precise technique leave audiences stunned. Here he digs into Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror,” delivering an energetic fingerstyle extravaganza! 

 

Joe Pass – “Ain’t Misbehavin’”

 

Here’s a classic. Joe Pass is legendary for his intuitive and expressive guitar playing. Here he tackles the classic “Ain’t Misbehavin,’” injecting his own personal style.

George Van Eps - “What’s New”

 

An American swing and jazz guitarist, George Van Eps started out playing banjo at age 11. Lucky for us he switched to guitar. He’s well known as the inventor of the seven-string guitar and you’ll notice him playing one in this video. This extra bass string allowed him to play bass lines below his chord voicings, and he called this technique “lap piano.” His influential career spanned over 60 years!
