I am really sad to hear of Matanya's passing. Life is too short. I was sure that I would have another round of dialogue with him at some point. He was often full of fire and brimstone, wit and vitriolic. Sometimes serious, sometimes in jest. Sometimes I wasn't certain whether he was serious or in jest. Sometimes I wasn't certain whether he was certain whether or not he was serious in jest. Sometimes I thought that his comments were off topic or irrelevant. Actually, his world of knowledge and experiences was much larger than mine.
There must be a gazillion "my experience(s) with Matanya" anecdotes out there!
The world is less because of his passing. His contribution to guitar literature, and even more importantly, to the lives of many guitarists, was significant.
