    No one says they can't play the guitar but it's got bugger all to do with Wes Montgomery. I think it's called using someone's name. Did they have to play Wes Montgomery tunes or just anything?

    And who are these clowns putting electric jazz guitars through microphones? It's supposed to be a prestigious jazz event.

    Sorry, my antenna's good and there's just something about it that doesn't sit quite right with me. Perhaps it's the competitive element and the sponsorship deals. Commercialism hasn't much to do with artistry. Or shouldn't have.

    Maybe if we knew more about the "Wes Montgomery Guitar Competition" back story, this thread and the talented guitarists in the video would be a bit more appreciated.

    I don't get the harsh criticism. They are young up coming players, they probably will be first to admit they are not at Wes level just yet.

    Plus, I know Michael Valeanu personally, he's a super cool cat and a great player!

    Good to see Dan Wilson up there, killing it as always. One of my favorite young players.

    Not sure why they didn't plug these guys in though.

    No one sounded like Wes but maybe that is good. I find guitar competitions like competitions on preaching.................let us no go anywhere near them.
    specializing in repair and setup, does your guitar play like it should?

    Is that how they decided the final? The one who sounds loudest unplugged?

    SO...to make a good impression, just remember to bring your Selmer/Mac guitar along. It'll leave everyone else in the rubble if they're mic'-ing the guitars.

    I agree. Dan is an incredible player. I've been taking skye lessons from him for over a year now. Really helping me take my playing to the next level.
