    Some years ago Jimmy Bruno released a live recording of his quartet, giving it to his students at JBGI. He played Lover Man, so that's the recording I'm taking off with.
    It's Latin style, brisk tempo, and his sound and playing is amazing. Very melodic, creative, bebop language with a modern touch ... and with some super fast runs too 😊

    I wish he could release a lot more!

    Really great material in there - many parts worth transcribing

    Great vibe and variety all over the place, loved it!

    The strat... probably the most underrated guitar...

    This version (in my opinion) is the ultimate Tribute solo in extremely good taste for Wes. I will listen to it often.

Some good moments, and some bad (as always):



    Oh man, just re-listened to a bunch. Back to the shed.
    Very good feeling and nice long phrasing.
    Great sounding jazz box!

    Your solid body Strat sounds very hollow...exelent.

    congrats for the beautifull sound and playing one more time.

    Wow, sounds good to me; really tasty and hip, FTB. I kind of thought, upon reading, "really? with lover man?". Glad to be proven wrong. Congrats.

    My version of this standard, maybe too slow ... I used to do a backing track with chords drop 3 (6432 strings) and learn them, although now I do not have so much time for jazz and my free time I must dedicate it to learn seguidillas and jotas with a bandurria.


    I played with a Washburn j3 and a strato classic player 50.


    Regards and it is a pleasure to hear so many good versions of this song.

    You are joined - you're here!

    Every month there's a 'practical standard' for us to play. Last month it was 'I Can't Get Started', this month it's 'Lover Man'. You can play it straight, reharmed, anyhow you like, and post it here.

    (I'm the local nuisance, I've done it eight different ways so far. Can't get enough of it )

    This seems like a good song for a beginner like myself.

    I thought gotta use my lunch times better and participation in this is one of my objectives for the year so sat in the sun under a tree with pen in hand and analysed the tune. It seems like one us beginners may have missed the boat on, is a good opportunity for us to have a crack at. Slow ii v's etc and the melody very diatonic and each bar often starts on the 1 of the underlying chord and really exploits the triads etc Jordan would be proud.

    Hopefully I can make time to get into it and get something down.

    Hope Feb will be in a similar vain and I will look at it earlier.

    Goody :-)

    Don't get hooked like me! Soon as I do one I think of another way to do it, and another, and another. Problem is there's an audience for it. Gives you incentive.

    I wish I could just do a short masterpiece, like a lot of the players here, and walk away. Must be marvellous! And there are some very good players here, I should tell you. But it's not a competition, at least it shouldn't be, I hope. There's always something to learn.

    Anyhow, welcome.

    Any link you post will display in words. Try it and see, you can always delete.

    I haven't had a chance to listen to all the submissions yet, but here's my entry. With all the mistakes I should probably call it "Lover Clam" instead. I'm using a Guitar Rig plug-in preset called "fields of Sco comping" that sounded kind of organ(ish) to me.
