Pat Martino Guestbook

Hi Pat,
I’ve only recently discovered your music, and it’s wonderful. I watched a video of you with Dave Frank “An Evening with Pat Marino” from 2016. I retired back in March and have recently started playing guitar again and taking lessons from a friend, he has that joy that you spoke of in the video with Dave Frank.
I read Miles Davis’s autobiography and got the impression he left Juilliard because it was too confining. It appears to me that those who tread their own path, no matter in music or elsewhere, not only are success but have the joy you speak of.
I had a trumpet teacher who played in a well known symphony orchestra and he could never understand that I had as much joy playing alone in my basement as anywhere.
As a young man I plucked around with the guitar but life, job and family became my priority. Now at 58 I’m playing again, though I may not achieve fame I will have joy. Thanks for the joy.

Hello Mr. Martino, I first met you when my friend and guitarist asked me to drive him to Philly for a lesson at your parents house in the early 80's because he didn't have a car. His name is Dean. I am a drummer myself. But I appreciated your talent then and still do today. The first album I heard was Joyous Lake, so as you can imagine Kenwood really got my attention to. I remember we all went over to Pat's steaks or the other famous one, Gino's maybe? Anyway thanks for sharing your gift with the world and for treating us regular folks ( meaning unknown to the music world ) so kindly. Great memories. God bless and get well, Jon

Happy New Year Pat

I just listened to "Formidable" again. Wonderful, wonderful work. You signed my copy of "Joyous Lake" several years ago at Catalina Bar and Grill. I've listened to the same vinyl copy since it came out! You are the very, very best!

Pat,

When I was about 11 years old my friend's father, a jazz musician in Chicago, gave me a copy of The Visit and said "If you want to learn how to play listen to this guy".

I listen to your playing every day and it has been a constant influence and inspiration to me.

David

Dear Pat,

Thanks for what you are sharing with us. I love to listen to you speaking about music. What you talk about hits me in the soul. It's life. There is no Art without a life lived within it and you hipped me to this. It's how you walk, talk, breath, eat, love and all the other feelings of the moment.

Your words truly changed my trajectory more than your music, which I love like a son loves his father. Please accept all the love and peace I have to offer. Always at your service should you need.

You know I used to be the Maestro (Dennis) soup boy!

I am struggling with love doing the Footprints etude from the DC Music courses. Almost like having a personal lesson and recalls the wonderful days back in DC. All the best, Maestro and Madam.

Enjoying your STRINGS! album on vinyl very much and good to hear my friend Ben Tucker in accompaniment. I knew him from the time I was 18 until handful of years back when he was tragically killed here in Savannah. I discovered your work in my search to own everything he was part of on vinyl. Thank you for your talents and adding so much color to the world canvas and that of people's imaginations!

I never knew a hacker could improve a credit score until i met one on a discussion forum when i googled how to improve my credit score, i read a lady’s comment on how capable the hacker is of solving any problems that has to do with hacking. So i sent him a mail and asked if he had the ability to raise credit scores(all 3 companies) and also eliminate eviction off court records. Then he replied yes and asked me to provide him some info of mine he’ll need to run the hack. when i did just that, he completed the hack within 72 hours at a price that’s worth it. I give thanks to the ethical hacker for coming to my aid when i needed him the most. Reach the hacker at ciphercreditware@gmail.com. cell number (+1 747-201-4041) and you’ll be amazed by his skills.
