CONNOISSEUR TALKS TO MARTIN TAYLOR
Connoisseur talks to Martin Taylor one of the "most awesome solo guitar players in history", as he opens up about his approach to teaching and why his favorite chord is a major seventh.
"There's also that feeling," he continues, "that musicians talk about, especially jazz musicians, of being in the zone. I talk to my students about this. I tell them I know that they have this feeling. It's the feeling where you say, 'OK, I've got 15 minutes, I'll just sit down with my guitar and have a little play.' Next thing you know, you've been sitting there for two and a half hours. You've just got into that zone. You've got totally into what you were doing. And that's what happens when you get beyond the thinking thing. When I get into that feeling, into that zone, the guitar disappears. I'm actually not conscious of playing the guitar."
