Monthly Motivation-Jimmy Shirley

TK Smith

I’m almost ashamed to say that I’ve only found out about guitarist Jimmy Shirley earlier this year. I dig his use of the vibrato. The mix of chords and single notes with only a bass for accompaniment is perfection to me on this 1945 recording of Stardust. Now I’m on the hunt to turn up more recordings by this early electric guitar master. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
