I have a background in classical guitar. Been playing for just over 10 years and now want to move I n to jazz guitar and I am looking for someone to work with in this area.
I'm working from the book(s) by Mickey Baker," Jazz and Hot Guitar" and it appears to be absolutely the book to learn from and I'm looking for a serious guitarist who's willing to put in the time master these lessons. Or at least get a good handle on them. If you can do this your playing will improve by leaps and bounds. There is no question about it!!!! But there will come a time when another guitarist will become perhaps necessary or at least very beneficial. So I'm looking for someone to work with on this level. It will only be to your advantage as it will help you grow tremendously as a musician. No kidding!!!
I have not gigged in quite a while but that is not my main focus right at this moment. I would like to tighten up my playing some before I get started. I do want to create but I would like to be familiar with this method first.
I've played a number of gigs but this was long ago. I don't see any problems getting back into it thought.

I have a number of pedals I just bought. Probably sort of standard stuff; phase, chorus, flange, delay etc,.
I've really never used them just thought i'd get them to have because I like the sound of them. I will be using them at some point. I've been playing classical for so long , there really wasn't any need for them.
