Wes Montgomery

Wes Montgomery

American jazz guitarist
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]
I never practice my guitar. From time to time I just open the case & throw in a piece of raw meat.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]
Regardless of what you play, the biggest thing is keeping the feel going.More Wes Montgomery quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Well, I got pretty good and went on the road with a group. We starved. At that time I didn't realize that you'd work one gig in Kansas City, the next in Florida and the next gig will be in Louisville. You know, a thousand miles a night. That was really rough, man.More Wes Montgomery quotes [07/27/2011 08:07:23]
