Wes Montgomery

American jazz guitarist
Regardless of what you play, the biggest thing is keeping the feel going.More Wes Montgomery quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's impossible for me to feel like there's only one way to do a thing. There's nothing wrong with having one way of doing it, but I think it's a bad habit. I believe in range. Like, there's a lot of tunes that I play all the time-sometimes I hear 'em in a different register. And if you don't have complete freedom, or you won't let yourself get away from that one straight line, oh, my goodness, that's too horrible to even think about.More Wes Montgomery quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I've really gone into business since I got the 6 string, which was like starting all over.More Wes Montgomery quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't know whether it was his (Charlie Christian's) melodic lines, his sound or his approach, but I hadn't heard anything like that before. He sounded so good and it sounded so easy, so I bought me a guitar and an amplifier and said now I can't do nothing but play! Really, welding was my talent, I think, but I sort of swished it aside.More Wes Montgomery quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To me, all guitar players can play, because I know they're getting to where they're at. It's a very hard instrument to accept, because it takes years to start working with it, that's first, and it looks like everybody else is moving on the instrument but you. Then when you find a cat that's really playing, you always find that he's been playing a long time, you can't get around it.More Wes Montgomery quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
