    I tend to feel the same way about many contemporary players. Give me taste and dynamics!

    If you want to just play Django "prewar" and use a "Selmer Maccaferri" type guitar

    Yes, I do thanks.

    Sign me up - I definitely want to ignore the last 50 years in jazz, the amplifier, Al Dimeola, and John McLaughlin.

    My thought precisely!

    Well, I do like a lot of post-bop jazz -- but very few modern jazz guitarists, especially that awful stuff they call fusion.

    Is this quest for speed thing unique to guitarists? I wonder if painters look at another artist's work and say, "yeah, it's kind of ugly, but he painted it really fast!!"

    Shorter George H. Vasquez:

    "If you want to learn to play like Django, you should learn to play like Al Di Meola and John McLaughlin instead."

    Hi!
    I just read your discussion with interest. I think it is obvious that rest strokes sound better than free strokes (if fuller, more dynamic and more powerful is better). Classical guitarists know that and úse rest strokes whenever possible. Maybe that really is the way to go?

    regards,
    Nym
