This research is the comparative analysis of Jim Hall's master work "Careful" and "Waltz New" who is the most influential guitar player of the present day. I tried to analysis musical inclination and direction comparison with contemporary musicians in this study. Jim Hall wasn't the person who did satisfy with only playing guitar as a famous artist but trying to research and create a new thing continuously with this his music. I am considering that his music has been great implications for contemporary direction.
