It’s a really simple one to set up and learn. As you learn to play the guitar you make adjustments to your playing, or you start to use other methods that might be less familiar to you. But I’m happy to say that the guitar is a pretty easy instrument and not a terribly difficult one, no matter what skill level you end up at.
My own advice is in the song, “Good Times Bad Times and the guitar is a nice way to start.”
Yeah, so in your book, you mention it’s not complicated but also that it’s one of those easy to play instruments.
That’s so true. And I think that’s important to point out, if you want a really fun and relaxing musical experience, get a guitar.
The guitar isn’t actually complicated in the same way that piano is, but it’s a lot of fun to sit there and practice with. So I’m a big fan of it. I think it’s something that every kid can try to pick up, if they’re interested in learning the basic chords and melody and chords that make up the jazz tradition — if you look at the chords you’ll see the same chords that make up the jazz chords, and you will get pretty good at that way.
Do you have a favourite instrument you can play at, if you were a drummer?
Yes! I love the electric guitar. I play it all the time.
I know, you play the guitar? [Laughs]. I’ve only actually heard one of the songs from The Jazz Album. Do you have a favourite piece you’ve played?
[Laughs] Well, I don’t know about playing the same things at the same times all the time, but I think there are a lot of good pieces. Actually a really good song is “The Longing Song,” and you really get into the soloing. That’s really what I’m all about and I think this is one of those songs — people come out of it and say it’s really unique in the way that it plays and it’s really good to play.
My favorite piece of the entire record is “The Longing Song.”
Yeah — “The Longing Song.”
Is that a solo that you play every time you play the guitar?
No, it’s very much a solo. It’s written really goodly so people don’t have to read the whole song just to hear your guitar solo.
