@bigboki Thanks very much, my friend! You are such a thoughtful fellow.
A true gentleman and a scholar.

Darrell appears to have an approach that is easy to follow. There are so many instructional videos on YT and some are much too technical from a theory standpoint for me to grasp.

I am still plugging away am slowly improving. I enjoy it very much and regret not getting more into jazz several years ago.

How are you doing with your pursuit of learning jazz guitar?
BTW Do you read music?

Hello my dear friend. Always thinking about you, especially when I pick up from time to time Mickey Baker's book.
I am very happy to hear that you are improving. And even more that you are having great joy from it. That's the most important.
I am guided by the principle "it is not the end goal but the road to it what is important"

My jazz guitar is very slow. But playing is going on good. I manage to play at least a little bit every day. And also having great fun and joy from it.

Now your Q? Reading music? In a sense can I play what I see in a music score? On the piano - without a problem (finished "elementary classical piano school back home in Serbia")
However on guitar not yet. I still don't know immediately where some note on the guitar is.

Yes, I like Darrell very much - very nice, always very positive, doing in my opinions very nicely paced, entertaining and informative videos. And is Canadian as well.
