    Pat Metheny's skills and not argued much.

    But his name is.

    How do YOU pronounce it?

    I don't know how he prefers it, but I've always heard "meth-eenie", emphasis on "een". Could be wrong, but that seems to be the standard pronunciation.

    Meh-thee-knee. (Note: The "Meh" is NOT social commentary. For pronunciation purposes only.)

  7. It's spelled Pat Metheny, but it's pronounced Throat Warbler Mangrove.

    I've always heard - and pronounced it Meh - thay - knee. Which is close enough to how he pronounces it for guv'mint purposes, and I'll never talk to him, anyway. Besides, most people I know have never heard of him, anyway. And, for the record; I like his music a lot...:)
