Tal Farlow was one of the pioneers to further develop Bebop Jazz Guitar after Charlie Christian. He really has his own style and own melodic language which I demonstrate in this video with an analysis of the solo on Gone With The Wind.
This Tal Farlow solo really highlights how he plays across the bar line and has a very advanced use of chromaticism in his playing. In many ways his concept and his solo lines where ahead of his time and he was truly a bebop innovator with a clear own voice.
At the end of the video I also talk a little bit about how his playing likely has influenced Kurt Rosenwinkel.
