Diego Figueiredo - Awesome Chord Melody Version of Stella By Starlight [Video]

Diego Figueiredo is a 27 year old guitarist from Brazil who studied at the Berklee College of Music. He studied jazz guitar, Brazilian popular music and classical guitar. In 2005 he won the Montreux Jazz Guitar Competition (organized by Quincy Jones, with a jury presided by Al Di Meola).

The words of Pat Metheny: "Dear Diego: I listened to your CD and it was a magic moment. When I go to Brazil, I would like to play with you".

Here's a video of Diego Figueiredo playing a chord melody version of Stella by Starlight. Very nice!

Just a note: Diego never studied at Berklee. He won a scholarship to study there,in 1999, but he did not accept it because of his professional compromises.He just studied guitar in Brasil,his homeland.
