Over 15 years ago I studied a Joe Pass Etude from his book "On Guitar." I posted a clip of myself playing along the original video recording of Joe here. It was by no means that easy to play in sync with the master. There were some pretty fast passages. What I learned from that etude especially was the use of altered V7 sounds over I chords, thus creating tension and resolution. But that was a long time ago.
Over the years I returned to the etude regularly, sometimes playing entire segments of it over standards. I always wanted to play the whole thing in one take over a standard and look and behold, when I tried it over "Night and Day" it worked like a charm! I did have to tweak the rhythmic placement of the notes a bit here and there to fit in the progression better but I did not change any notes from the etude. Amazing really. Joe's playing is so brilliant you can play an etude designed to be played over a static chord over an entire progression of a jazz standard without it losing its musicality.
The book remains highly recommended for those interested in studying the style of Joe Pass. I used Jens Larsen's backing track of "Night and Day." Love his comping. Thanks Jens!
