Stanley Jordan: Stairway To Heaven

Stanley Jordan is one of those guitarists who just goes his own way and develops a unique style and sound. He’s taken the two-handed tapping technique and developed it in a highly original way. And we’re not talking metal here, but jazz.

The two-handed technique allows him to combines chord work, melody, bass and counterpoint in his playing, sometimes on two guitars simultaneously. He normally tunes them in fourths, E – A – D – G – C – F,

Jazz might be his mainstay, but here’s a cool clip of him interpreting a rock masterpiece – Stairway To Heaven.
