Surf 10 years ago 351,752 views
Jazz guitarist Bill Frisell is no stranger to the Fretboard Journal. He was interviewed in our fourth issue by banjo player Danny Barnes and then, in issue 12, Frisell penned a story where he interviewed his guitar hero, Jim Hall. On the sixth day of our Twelve Days of Fretboard, Frisell plays "Surfer Girl" on his Fender Esquire (through a Carr Sportsman amp). As always, Frisell sounds incredible.

Love how you don't get carried away with harmonies, and keep songs recognizable, yet interpreted and jazzy. Brilliant stuff, as always.

I wish I could play like him...
1.) In this clip and others, not playing with high-gain overdrive pedals.
2.) His Telecasters are shielded well.
3.) He plays at fairly low volumes.
4.) He has reasonable distance from the guitar amp.
5.) The rooms and environments he plays in don't have "dirty power" or other electronic maladies that emphasize potential 60 cycle hum.
To my knowledge, Frisell does NOT use "noiseless" single coil pickups. In my own playing circumstances, with similar Telecasters, and with similar amps, effects, and in similar circumstances, I do not get any noticeable 60 cycle hum either.
