    Sco's great. I need to acquire some more of his stuff. I got his duet album with Pat Metheny recently, and it was superb.

    Love him. Probably my favourite guitarist of any genre.

    I've got a lead-sheet of 'Protocol' somewhere at home that my old teacher wrote out. I ought to dig it out again, as I remember it being a fun tune to jam on...

    Cheers, guys. :cheers:

    I've always heard of him but never got into him until a few years ago. Actually, recently, I started to get into him alot more, after going to his myspace page and all, great player with a great tone IMO. :agreed:

    Here are some .pdf's that I have done for my blog, Protocol is a good finger work out and the rest are some great grooves from his Agogo album:

    Protocol
    Hottentot
    Agogo
    Chank

    I have these tabbed for 8 string on my blog, but if people ask nicely I will tab for 6 string. Of course, that won't be needed as everyone reads music right!? :)

    Strangely, I've seen Sco in concert more than any other single performer - three or four times, if memory serves.

    :lol: You know me too well. I was actually going to start a thread on him but I figured Scofield is more jazz than EJ. Although EJ is a great jazz player, i've always considered him more of a blues player. :agreed:

    I especially love Sco's Uberjam and Up All Night albums, it's cool to hear him take to more modern approaches without sounding like some old guy trying to chase trends.
