I Remember Wes

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Here is my transcription of George Benson’s “I Remember Wes”. It’s a lovely solo and not too difficult to get down. It also has a few interesting devices within that give you a glimpse into his style/thoughts.

A few years back I bought “The Art Of Jazz Guitar” DVD. It’s a wonderful informal look into one of the great jazz guitarists of our time. George discusses his influences, improvisation ideas and much more. Can’t recommend this DVD any higher.  IMHO a must for all jazz guitarists to have in their library.  Hope you enjoy playing through the transcription.  Drop me a line if you do.
