About 30 years ago I lived in Santa Barbara California. I was a classical guitarist looking to learn how to play jazz. A friend of mine told me off a jazz guitar teacher named Bill Thrasher. I called , and eventually it became the Joe Pass method. Bill was not very happy about that., we became good friends. One day he told me of a meeting that he had had with Joe Pass. He said that Joe was going to write a book and that he wanted me to help. So Bill wrote about 200 pages of texted. Bill ended up giving me the copy he had written. So if you want one let me know?
