Pat Metheny Trio: Live
Gene Santoro, Chamber Music, April 2001
THE GUITAR is arguably the most eclectic and democratic of instruments. Some form of it appears in nearly every society. Anyone can learn to play the basics on it easily, yet it's also a demanding instrument capable of melody, polyphony, and polyrhythms. You could say it's the perfect ax for America—and that it's no accident that it's the icon for America's best-known music, rock and roll.
