Learning From The Masters: Pat Martino
I always loved Pat Martino.
Now here’s a guy who already was a world-class famous jazz guitarist, then got hit in 1980 with a nearly fatal brain aneurysm, forgot everything, and had to learn how to play all over completely from scratch again.
He came back with a vengeance.
That story always reminds me a bit of Django Reinhardt’s story. Django lost the use of half of his fretting hand in a fire, had to relearn how to play guitar, and against all odds, came back better than ever before.
Inspiring stories. Nothing is impossible.
Not a whole lot of reading or writing in this blog. Let’s leave the talking to Pat. It’s an interesting interview with lots of great info.
Here’s some of Pat’s teachings (for the more advanced guitarists)
