Romane DVD

Postby Rich » Sun Apr 13, 2003 9:39 pm

I was just reading the reviews section and read the review on Romane's tutorial DVD. Has anyone got any other opinions on this DVD and any other sources (preferably in English) on the net to buy it from?
thanks for the help.

The tabs etc are excellent and come at the challenges from several directions. Can't comment on the CD because this package is just too much, all at once. On the other hand Robin Nolan is too little.

You'll work almost entirely on Romane tunes, fwiw. You'll need "Ombre".

French isn't so hard. Impossible, but nothing like Django. Get a froggie dictionary and shrug. If you think this is bad, try their politics.

I'll dedicate a few weeks to it one of these days. I did spend the money and it's a great package.

the old Romane in Nashville VHS tape is worth the price you pay but it only teaches you a tad about the tri-tone, square to chromatic chord substitution, and chromatic arpeggios (playing successive arpeggios in chromatic fashion), which is most efficient 15 minute lesson that I have ever experienced and its enough to get you going for sure if your a beginner.

Is this a typo, or is it really work? And is "square to chromatic chord substitution" square like an out of it dad, or something else? (I'm not trying to be a wisenheimer, either.)

no offense taken. your comment is actually pretty funny. :-)

alright, i fixed the typo in my last message (above). also, when I say "square progression to chromatic" what I meant is a chord progression in a "box" formation transposed in the same key with chord substitution into a "inline/chromatic" pattern. I am a beginner jazz player as well and that is the only way I can think of describing it. Mabye I will go back to my site and doctor up that weblog entry so that its not confusing....

...by the way Mo, 'Albuquerque' should actually be pronounced 'Albukirk'. Now, was that easy or what? :)

Actually, Albuquerque began as Alburquerque (extra "r"). There have been moves to revive the old spelling, just to make things worse. Nobody here calls it "Albuquerk." Hispanic hipsters call it "bour-keh" (no "a")

The Romane package I have includes CD and a fat book. I've ignored the CD. Sorry to confuse poor mwillikins.

No DVD. I'm old fashioned: I bought the ancient publication in 2002.

The book is great if you want to study Romane's own "Ombre" pieces, less so you want to learn pieces more closely identified with Django, jazz, or gypsies generally. However it's
not designed to teach pieces so much as to teach method.

You really are a complete idiot Maurice - he asked about the DVD which is something COMPLETELY SEPARATE from the book and CD you have. What makes you think you have confused me?
