Stanley Jordan

In my past life, as a hard rock bass guitarist, I had several musical idols. One of them was not a rock bass guitarist but a jazz guitarist – Stanley Jordan. From his style of playing, I learned to incorporate a two-handed technique into my own song writing.

These days, the only time I miss my bass guitars is after watching him play. You can see his David Letterman appearance here.

Simply exquisite.
