If nobody objects, I'd like to encourage everyone to drop links here of chord melody playing they find on youtube or elsewhere.  Ted's breadth of knowledge about players was, like many other subjects, encyclopedic.

Perhaps we can continue that knowledge base and grow it a little for ourselves. 
My concern would be information overload, and "link-itis," but perhaps someone has some suggestions to minimize that.  i.e. using 'channel' names re: youtube or whatever.  Performances of songs we also have from Ted, for example, would be interesting to compare and so on.

Thoughts?

I've been checking out Adam Rafferty's acoustic guitar vids for a while. 
Here's a recent fresh take on "Autumn Leaves":

AsatBluesboy! No C.V.is his "curriculum vitae"i.e.his lifes history-if you go to his website search for Bio(biography) you will see just that since he started playing when he was six years old.Hope this helps?

An interesting approach to "Killing Me Softly" on hybrid 6 (nylon) string guitar/bass by Franck Philippo: 

Fire up your subwoofer for this one!

LOVE Adam Rafferty's Autumn Leaves! He looks like he's having so much fun as he plays, and the music is a reflection of that spirit.

Franck Philippo's Killing Me Softly is also very nice...great touch, tone and what a bass sound!

I have always been in awe of Joe Pass's virtuosity, but I don't always appreciate the musical result as much as I think I should.  Not so with this performance.  Very moving.

In regards to solo guitar, I more or less agree with David on Joe . But Joe was much more than just a solo guitarist. He was very versatile. If any of you haven't heard it already, I recommend "For Django"; probably the best Bebop guitar playing you'll ever hear! Great tone as well!

In addition to "For Django" I particularly like the "Appassionata" and "Summer Nights" recordings.
