Etude #1 from Jimmy Wyble


Jimmy Wyble, who recently passed away (R.I.P) was a master of the guitar. He had a unique style, kinda Bach meets Bill Evans. His ability to improvise complex contrapuntal parts in a jazz context was mind boggling. Fortunately he left us with many etudes and lessons.

Today we'll present his famous "Etude #1". It's a challenging piece rythmically, try to avoid barre chords, Jimmy was all for finger independance.
