Great Guitarists: Charlie Christian

Charlie played with Benny Goodman for a brief period in the late 1930s before his untimely death.. He was one of the first to play the electric guitar. He has influenced every major jazz guitarist that has come afterwards. In my opinion, Charlie Christian  and Django Reinhardt are the most influential of all jazz guitarists. My favorite songs of his are Flying Home, Till Tom Special, and Seven Come Eleven. They are on the Benny Goodman Sextet recordings.
