    From the videos I’ve seen, I think Kurt does a great job explaining his approach to music.

    I saw a video last year on YouTube of a clinic in Gdansk. He plays through Body and Soul and talks about shell voicings. I’d like to watch it again, but the video has since been made private. Would anyone here have access to it by chance?

    Don’t know if this helps, but someone has done this video based on it.

    Yeah. Really hated to see that one go. That's me whining about it in the comments for this video. :-)

    Didn't think about just how temporary these things can be. Never occurred to me to record it nor would I really know how right now.

    We had a thread on this a while back but the thread too seems to have disappeared (is Kurt that powerful?)

    My recollection is that Kurt played the shell chords under the melody by alternating simple 2-note chords, I think it was something like root and 7th, then 5th and 3rd.

    Also someone attempted to summarise it here:

    very interesting, Kurt Rosenwinckel's advice joins my way of learning, when I didn't know his and my style has nothing to do with it. No wonder he worked on Jimmy Wyble's principles... It is almost a scandal that no subject is devoted to Jimmy Wyble in this forum. In 20 years, maybe...

    Jimmy Wyble has been discussed occasionally - I don’t think the forum search option finds everything though. Easier to search in google (include jazzguitar.be in the search terms). I found this for example.

    thank you, I've read everything and heard what's available on Jimmy Wyble, but the best way is to work, and the best source is A Tribute To Jimmy Wyble,years of work

    So Kurt was a student of Wyble's priciples? This will give me insight to Kurt's approach?

    no idea about that, but it’s interesting that Wyble’s ‘primer’ shows exactly the same idea as Kurt’s method for playing solo on the ‘Gdansk’ video (alternating root and 7th with 5th and 3rd).

    See page 2 here:

    I seem to have read an interview where he talks about it, but I can't find it. Anyway he says he worked on the Harmonics Mechanism of Van Eps, and I do not know what he does with it in his playing. It doesn't jump to my ears, except in some full solos. There are Wyble exercises very close to those of Van Eps, which makes sense. Among his students at the Guitar Institute, Wyble had Howard Roberts, Steve Lukather, Larry Koonse, Howard Alden...

    Ted Greene: “When people ask me to describe this music (of Jimmy Wyble), oneway I’m fond of is: George Van Eps meets Bartok and they visit T. Monk to discuss the music of J.S. Bach and a certain Mr. Gershwin.”
