Here’s a soul-jazz solo I discovered by a guitarist who’s unfortunately uncredited on the recording. It’s from the 1967 album “Honky Tonk Organ” by Bill Doggett. It might be Billy Butler, but that’s just… More…

Big news for Django fans: a new live recording was unearthed and shared online. It’s Django playing with the ATC Band on Dec. 16, 1945. Here’s the full transcription of all six choruses by Django over… More…

I just discovered this great fingerstyle tune from Chet Atkins’ 1968 album Solo Flights and written by Jerry Reed. Such a tasty, bluesy melody! More…

Sean posted this exercise on Instagram yesterday (https://www.instagram.com/p/BoX8_NCl8LO/), saying "it's the best guitar exercise I know," so I had to Soundslice it. It's a chromatic scale in octaves,… More…

F major scale exercise

Error!

I’ve been playing around with making exercises based on a simple scale, where I take a chord voicing I like and increment each of its notes by a scale step. It can reveal some beautiful new voicings! Here’s… More…

Man, this intro. I’ve never come across most of these voicings before. From the 1958 Julie London album “Julie Is Her Name, Vol. 2.” More…

Error!

Adrien and Benoit! This transcription was done by Denis Chang; I merely added the rhythmic values and Soundsliced it. More…

From the classic recording of “Cry Me A River” by Julie London. 1955. More…

Picking exercise

Error!

I made this one up to practice lots of consecutive downstrokes. The time feel of it is really odd, despite it being in 4/4! More…

Error!

The diminished color in this intro is classic Django! More…

Sounds so complicated, but it falls nicely under the fingers. Olli plays a Bb lick over the F7. From “Anniversary Song” on the Hot Club D'Europe album “Kouvola Junction.” More…

Gruvskool challenge Cover

Error!

It’s about time somebody did an acoustic contribution to Mark Lettieri’s Gruvskool Challenge... :-) This was actually quite tricky for me to learn, as I never play this kind of style/feel. More…

Error!

Super-swinging playing! By pianist Eddie Costa on the tune “Walking” on the Barry Galbraith album “Guitar and the Wind,” from 1958. I’ve transcribed only the piano melody, not the left hand rhythm. At… More…

Catchy fingerstyle piece! Need to learn this one. More…

Great playing from the “Coast to Coast” album, recorded in April 1980. More…

George Barnes, man. How did he come up with this stuff? And in 1946?!… More…

Some nice weird substitutions over a vanilla chord progression from Adrien. More…

In my quest to transcribe everything by Mr. Moignard, I found this deep cut and duly transcribed it. ;-) Who’s gonna do the first Soundslice cover?! More…

What a beautiful intro played by Julian. From Ben Powell’s 2012 album “New Street.” More…

Here’s an excellent chord etude Angelo showed at Django In June 2018, which took place last week in Northampton, MA. If you don’t know Django In June, mark your calendar for next year — I highly recommend… More…

Beautiful fingerstyle arrangement that I just *must* learn. More…

So much awesomeness happening in this single chorus — rhythmic displacement, zany harmonization, then out of nowhere comes a super flourish. From the album “Wholly Cats,” recorded in 1995. More…

Error!

Django did a lot of this kind of thing. I was playing around trying to see how far I could take it. More…

Error!

Excellent ideas and phrasing from Billy Bean on the 1958 album “The Trio.” More…

I developed this exercise to help with legato and finger dexterity. It kind of doubles as an “outside” lick, though I have yet to use it in the wild... More…
