Watch the Free Flying online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from 50 Jazz Master Licks You MUST Know

No discussion of jazz guitar is complete without diving into the playing of Wes Montgomery. He is one of my main influences and I know he is an influence to almost every jazz guitarist out there. Wes played with his thumb as opposed to a pick and had tremendous command of using fluid single notes lines, octaves and melodic chords in his solos. Here is a great arpeggiated line using tremendous range on the instrument. Take a listen.
