The Fretboard Journal
"A few years ago, we filmed Bill Frisell performing a gorgeous solo version of "Embraceable You." A young and very promising guitarist (Jan Jakut) decided to transcribe it. For a limited time, you can order this transcription directly from Jan via the link below.
Note: This was done with Bill's permission and through all the correct song licensing channels. This is just a PSA on our part in case you want to channel your inner Frisell. And don't we all?"

Jan Jakut is an electric-guitarist based in Seattle, Washington. Confronting the musical aesthetics of Hendrix and
Cobain with textures derived from Jazz, 50s and 60s instrumental music, his music explores contemporary genres in a jazz setting.
Working on his first EP he is poised and determined to tour his music.
He is pursuing his Master's degree in Jazz and Improvised Music with the Helen A. Reynolds Endowed Scholarship in Music and working as Teaching Assistant at the University of Washington, Seattle. His first publication for Schott Music International was released in early 2015, in 2016 he was one of the finalists in Lee Ritenour's Six String Theory Music Competition.

Exploration in Modal Subversion: Grunge & Jazz for electric guitar.'Nirvana's repertoire in particular is filled with many apparent cross-relations, comprising a salient feature of their
songwriting style. It often seems that the moment at which the expected modality of a song is called into question by the appearance of a cross-relation comprises the song's 'hook'."
