    That looks fun, but also it looks like it'd harder than all hell to get used to.

    Turner only needed two necks.
  7. Linda Manzer has made another one of those for a different guitarist as well.

    I believe Pat calls it the Picasso. :D
  8. Metheny plays that thing live on his more etherial works. I know he uses it on As Wichitah Falls.. .You can see where he plays the bass notes. It is pretty cool. Metheny is mind blowing in concert. He is touring again, will be in fla in feb.

    Can someone recomend a MEtheny album to me?
  10. The DVD "Speaking of Now Live" has Pat playing the Picasso. It also has Richard Bona and he has a solo on there. Great DVD.
  11. I think the best Metheny is when he was on his Brazillian kick. The Travels is a double live album from San Fran in 1982. Back then, the pot head hippie types that like pink floyd were sophisticated enough to like fusion and jazz. you here them cheering. The whitichita song is in movements, and is like 17 minutes long.

    FIrst Circle is also essential metheny.

    I dont really know what I like...I guess jazz with a bit of groove to it, but i've got stuff by Miles, Coltrane, Mingus, Monk, Hancock, Brubeck, Byrd and like pretty much all of it for different reasons!

    My first recommendation would be Bright Size Life w/ Jaco. A must for bass players I think.
    And next I would say either the Speaking of Now CD or DVD. Yes, Richard Bona's solo on that is AMAZING. I just got a chance to see him live a few weeks back. Sat two seats away from him and even got to play his new Five string Fodera after the show :hyper: :D Sweet!
  16. Hey wasn't that guitar? on an episode of ST TOS , where they had a transporter accident, beaming down Spocks harp and the hippies guitars?

    I'm afraid to string it. Or hold it.
