    I just watched an interesting hour-long video with Frank Vignola demonstrating his approach to chord-melody and responding to questions.

    It makes me want to check out more chord-melody teaching and playing videos. Since there are so many videos on YouTube, some better than others, I’m hoping you’ll save me/us some time by linking to some of your favorites.

    Great lesson, love his nice laid-back groove. And it makes me want to pick up an easy playing strat like his. It's definitely a lot more challenging to do that on the nylon classical I play.

    You should check out Robert Conti's videos on chord melody soloing.

    One is called The Chord Melody Assembly Line and the other is called The Formula.

    He has some good introductions to each video on our website.

    Tim has such a strong pulse going though his lines that it creates the space/s for the melody to naturally fall into - wicked playing !!

    Thanks for the correction. I'm glad I didn't run out and buy a Strat.

    Two words. One name.

    Chris Whiteman



    I watch through his Playlists all the time and occasionally order some of his arrangements. He is a true inspiration. Impeccable taste and clean technique.
    Completely unhindered by talent.

    Whole site dedicated to Ted Greene one of the masters. Lots of transcriptions/lessons/theory from standards to classical roots to ..... I have been working through the blues based stuff as a place to start but the resources go on and on and on!!! It is not structured so you need to be your own guide but it is all there!!

    Not much in terms of instructional value, but being the lover of Wes that I am, I’d be remiss if I didn’t post this:



    However, this gentlemen does a very nice job on it:



    As does this one:

    For anyone wanting to learn or brush up on their chords, Rodrigues has a variety of video/pdf lessons (for a fee) on his site. I'm going through the intermediate lesson and it's excellent.

    Jim Hall did not do much solo guitar playing (at least on records), but here he is playing Duke Ellington all by his lonesome:

    As far as teaching/learning videos, I would suggest Barry Greene. Superb musician, incredible chops, and his solo arrangements are very musical and playable.

    I do not know about tutorials, but there are some videos of solo playing that i really enjoy even if they are relatively simple...

    I like all Bobby Broom home recorded stuff on his chanell... very authentic, lyrical and brutal jazz guitar.
    And I like how he records it - without much care about record quality - just grab a guitar and play...

    There is more..

    Also I love Vince Lewis' solo playing... it is more convetional but he has so much warmth and humanity in his playing...

    (One of the problem today is that there are lots of skillfully played arrangements of standards but they all sound approximately the same: some kind of neutralized hybrid style)

    And Tim Lerch - metnioned above... he does not seem to do something extrememly complex but he has such a moving lively groove and sense of phrase...
    It really puts him in a different league for me...

    I like this man's tone and light touch, but doesn't he push the timing in places? I don't mind pulling/stretching, just as I don't mind someone being slightly flat, but pushing or being sharp give me the shivers.
