Dropped Rock For Jazz

Charlie Hunter began to play rock guitar at age 12 until he discovered jazz at 18 (good for him), and the rest is history. He doesn’t just play a regular guitar, but an eight-string that allows him to pick both bass (3 strings with his thumb) and acoustic (5 strings with the rest of his fingers) at the same time. His solo rendition of Charles Mingus’s “Fables of Faubus” showcases his exemplary jazz chops. Hunter’s live performances could be downloaded at his site for free. Good stuff, folks!
