Watch the Moonlight online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from 50 Jazz Master Licks You MUST Know
Bill Frisell is one of the leading modern jazz guitarists today who infuses his music with influences from traditional jazz, progressive folk music, western classical music, country, rock and really whatever else touches him. He is a very thoughtful and lyrical player who creates melodic imagery in his ideas. Unlike many other guitarists Bill Frisell doesn't really have signature licks. It's more about the overall sound. This first example is reminiscent of his approach to playing on an portion of the tune Moon River. It is very thoughtful and compositional in approach.
