Watch the Triste online guitar lesson by Mimi Fox from Jazz Performance
I have taken some heat over the years by jazz "purists" who have questioned my use of open string riffs and accused me of the heinous "crime" of listening to people like Glen Campbell and Jerry Reid of digging Chet Atkins or Chuck Berry so sue me! To me, great musicians come from all genres and I appreciate many styles of music as long as the artistry is top notch I think that adding these aspects into my music gives my jazz playing more color. It's a very personal choice and each musician has to explore and find what's right for them. Have fun listening to everyone you enjoy!
