Gypsy Jazz Guitar Guidebook by Reinier Voet
Key Rhythm & Soloing Approaches for Gypsy Jazz Guitar
‘In the traditional gypsy culture, gypsy jazz musicians learned how to play from their elders, usually a family member. The gypsy method relied on intense practice and imitation, with little or no formal education. The master plays and the student emulates what he hears and sees. In similar fashion (but with the aid of interactive video, tab, and notation), master gypsy jazz guitarist Reinier Voet will pass on 10 key concepts and guide you through 7 performance studies in the Gypsy Jazz Guitar Guidebook.
“We’ll dig into all of the important ingredients and techniques of this beautiful European based style of jazz guitar, invented by Django Reinhardt almost a century ago and still very popular today. We’ll go beyond playing licks and get a solid grip on all the concepts you need to learn this exciting musical language. I’ll illustrate these concepts and techniques by playing full length solos on the standard chord progressions used in gypsy jazz.”
The concepts and techniques in this Guidebook are used by all of the master gypsy jazz guitarists including Django Reinhardt, Stochelo Rosenberg, Fapy Lafertin, Bireli Lagrene, and Angelo Debarre.’ Click here for more details…
