I’m really pleased to share this review by the veteran transcriber Wolf Marshall. (I first read Wolf’s transcriptions back in the 80’s when he was the featured transcriber for the most popular guitar magazines of the time.) Thank you both to Wolf and to Vintage Guitar for this lovely review!

I’m very happy to announce that the book is featured in November’s issue of Just Jazz Guitar Magazine — the 15th anniversary issue.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Just Jazz Guitar, it’s a terrific magazine with great interviews, lessons and reviews. I highly recommend it.

They excerpted part of the book, and I wrote some new text to accompany the excerpt. To see the cover and table of contents, click here or visit justjazzguitar.com and click on “current issue.”

We’re going to be adding a sample page or two of the Wes Montgomery book to this website. What part of the book would you like to see here? Any particular tunes — Jingles, Full House, Twisted Blues, West Coast Blues?

I’d definitely like the sample to show the tabulature (TAB), since many people email to verify the book includes TAB as well as standard notation.
