Howard Morgen

     Howard Morgen was involved with music in many ways. He was a fingerstyle jazz columnist, worked at the Manhattan School of Music and Guitar Study Center. He was also involved in the Guitar Player Magazine Faculty and The New School for Social Research. Howard did some of the best solo fingerstyle jazz guitar arrangements that you'll ever hear of pop, jazz and Christmas standards. His arrangements are very polyphonic and use inner moving voices, walking bass lines, artificial and natural harmonics, chord substitutions and extensions, and chord reharmonizations.

      Howard Morgen died in 2012 from cancer and guitarists everywhere lost a great performer, teacher and arranger with his passing.
Charlie Byrd was an avid fan of Howard's playing and often cited him as one of his favorite arrangers of jazz and pop standards for fingerstyle guitar. Paul Simon studied guitar with Howard for years, pursuing his never ending quest to understand harmony and become a better guitar player himself. Howard will be sorely missed by guitarists all over the world.
