Our legendary guitar solo of the day is the solo performed in "MINUANO" by legendary the guitarist Mr. PAT METHENY. The Minuano is a cold wind that blows in the South of Brazil and in Uruguay. It is widely mentioned in the Gaúcho folklore of the region. "Minuano (Six Eight)" is a song title by the Pat Metheny Group on the album Still Life (Talking). Still Life (Talking) is an album that was released in 1987 on Geffen Records. It won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Fusion Performance and was certified gold by the RIAA on July 2, 1992. This was the Group's first album to be released by Geffen. It combines Brazilian jazz-influenced harmonies with jazz, folk, and pop. "Minuano (Six-Eight)" is a fantastic masterwork by Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays. “Minuano (Six Eight),” the album’s longest cut at almost ten minutes, is a radiant gem that brings to mind the work of the Brazilian singer/songwriter Milton Nascimento.
Pat is a fan of playing chromatic thirds, both ascending and descending. One of the elements of Pat's playing that stands out is his fluid, legato playing, which you can see and hear in this video. Metheny's articulation is very personal. His technique of holding the pick backward and playing with the round end is so idiosyncratic, one is tempted to sound a warning that says, "Don't try this at home, kids." Metheny's particular way of sliding into a note is what called a "jazz dwee." It was probably inspired by the playing of Wes Montgomery or Jim Hall: two major influences on Metheny.
