    Nobody has ever played jazz guitar like J.S. His significance as a player would have been forgotten if it weren’t for the recent 8 CD set released by mosaic making all but three of the transcriptions available on disk. This is strictly a single note transcription set, as...

    there are no chords, which is a little disappointing because he was the undisputed king of unconventional chords. This book is for the advance guitarist as many of the solos break over the 220-bpm mark. The set is without tablature as the book was not written by J.S. and only he would know what fingerings he was using for these works. In my opinion there are only two truly heavy jazz guitarist one is Pat Martino and the other of course is Johnny Smith. For those that want the chords to these solos, those can be purchased at, they carry over 60 complete song transcriptions more than anyother place that I know of. It’s a shame that everything that J.S. ever played isn’t in print.
