Pat Metheny Youtube – Harp Guitar

This is a very interesting acoustic guitar video with Pat Metheny, the guitar player who recorded some magnificent albums on the EC M label, including Watercolors, New Chautauqua, Bright Size Life.  Pat made it famous as a guitar player very early at about 17 years old when he joined the vibraphone player Gary Burton’s band.  Although Pat Metheny is predominantly known as a jazz guitar player, he has ventured a long way out from the standard jazz format with his acoustic guitar playing and has recorded a very beautiful acoustic guitar album on Baritone Guitar called One Quiet Night. 

This video, for me,  shows where one area of guitar is heading and the work he is doing is as innovative as such great players as Michael Hedges, Pierre Bensusan. Andy Mckee and other contemporay players.  Here once again Metheny is playing a guitar named “Picasso”by the the great Canadian luthier Linda Manzer, it was recorded at a guitar festival in Cordoba Spain.
