That's really sweet, most of the people here probably don't know who George is and what a pioneer he was. I checked out his method book as a kid, but I could never find a seven string guitar. Never thought I'd get to see him play ! Thank you:cool:

Cool stuff! He was one of the first known guitarists to venture into 7-string territory, too.

He's the most famous of the early seven-stringers in jazz. There were a number of unknown folk and classical player using the instrument before.

That's a very nice solo. It's cool to be able to watch.

Seems there are fairly few jazz guys left who embrace the seventh string (Charlie Hunter, John Pizzarelli). I wonder if future generations of jazz players will start playing sevns and tuning the low string to B, after seeing Steve Vai or another rock&roll player.

Yeah, I probably meant to say "well known".
