    Joe Satriani no Chords and the Joe Pass Chord Book

    This is a great interview I found on Guitar World (at the bottom of the article)

    And here’s the good play ebook version of the Joe Pass Chord Book:

    I play a customized Godin 5th Avenue, Córdoba GK Studio, and a Gibson L6-S. I also play a Kala uBass on occasion

    That is a great interview. Joe is super nice and very humble. A friend of mine worked on Joe's "The Extremist" LP and he goes to all of the shows whenever Joe is in town. I was able to go and meet him after an couple of shows...once with Chickenfoot and once after a solo show. Very cool guy!

    For anybody who doesn't want to go on a scavenger hunt to find the interview or reference to the Joe Pass book - time is 8:57 where he talks about learning chords:

    One of the biggest problems I encounter with jazz guitar students is that they have learned a ton of chords, scales and arpeggios, but they can’t play a tune or jam on a standard with other musicians.
    Thanks, Matt

    That's because "jazz" has become synonymous with "challenge" for a lot of young players, not with "music."

    So you hear guys say stuff like "I want to learn some jazz so I can work it into my 8 string progressive metal playing" or whatever.

    Jazz is just a different approach to tunes. It's a how, not a what. LEARN TUNES.

    Yup. I like to show them the Abyss.

    They usually shut up after that.
