My use of the word was deliberate.
As was my correction.
Versatile and wise musician.
Well there you go, you've had the last word. Does that make you feel better? Or maybe you don't need to...

Monte, I love you man. I really do.
exactly. not particularly solos, either...just great parts.
My Andy Summers story. ( I have Sting and Stewie stories too)
I met Andy at his studio in Venice CA, back in the late 80's. I was delivering 2" tape. A ton of it. After I was done, he invited me into the studio. So many guitars! He asked if played and I said yes. Lets play some then, then back to work you go. He picked up his red Strat and handed me his famous Tele Custom. We played. It was awesome. Nicest guy you'd ever meet.
i guess it was Regatta de Blanc that i first heard where i grew up... but it wasn't until i picked up The Guitar Handbook by Ralph Denyer sometime around Synchronicity that has Andy Summers Introduction that i really began to think of him as a guitarist, up till then the Police were a whole vibe that i liked but didn't investigate. It's super fun to go back and hear him with more educated ears nowadays
My fingers don’t stretch far enough.
Actually, those jazzy chords that Andy Summers liked to play would qualify as both.
I recall this story...I didn't remember that it was you . That is just friggin awesome!!! So cool he handed you that infamous tele!
If I ever try to play Message in a Bottle with those 9th chords, my hand is a cramped mess in less than a minute!
And he was doing this when the current fashion of playing was going in the opposite direction!
'Fashion' is, by its very nature, ephemeral... 'style', however, is much more long lasting.

You could write a book!!! That’s such a cool story. What I love about most guitar players is the shared enthusiasm about playing and the instrument itself. This story reinforces that belief, as so many of my interactions with folks here.
That is actually a great idea.
With the life and people Chris has met it would be a wonderfully absorbing book.
Ever thought about it Chris?
