Gerry Beaudoin is one the three guitarists in the fabulous New Guitar Summit (I will blog them later). Here is a great interview with Gerry. A brief extract:

What are the three biggest stumbling blocks for developing guitarists?

GB: Ah, the kids don’t really know what jazz is and they haven’t listened to a lot of real good music. And their chord knowledge is nil. Because you can play rock with three or five chords. And to watch them get into it and develop is like a real thrill. Chord structures are very important; harmony is very important. Theory, and that’s something musicians use to always learn thirty and forty years ago. But they don’t learn that way today.
