Book by Romane

Postby angorawol » Sun Jun 01, 2003 9:39 pm

Today, I found out that the only book on Guitarre Manouche is from Romane.
Although he called then Patrick Leguidcoq. 'Guitare Manouche'
It's a bilangual book with a 45 single included, by Salabert Methode from 1983. mèthode de jazz gitan.
It's rather complete, starting from the very beginning (how to put your pick, easy startup exersices, Arpeggio's, chord schemes, and a table for the formation of chords. And also some tunes:
I got Rhythm
Que reste t'il de nos amours
Whispering
Some of these days
Nuages
Minor Swing
Since I only recently picked up my instrument again (not a maccaferri yet) after 12 years, I'm only in the first part.

There are also nice pictures in it from son Patrick and his father Maurice, the bewildered Spatzo, Ninine, two guys called Maurice and Joseph, Mondine.

Did you people ever heard of this book?

Romane Book (Pat to his mates!)

Postby O.K. YAR » Mon Jun 09, 2003 9:41 am

I've got that book. It was given to me by a friend who got it from Samoise in the early days. You know, the days when Romane was Patric Legquidcoq. I don't think this book is in print anymore and it came with a tape (my mate lost it so I don't know what it was like). The transcriptions are accurate but I think there is better on the market or even on Web.

Incidentally, someone told me that dear old Pat changed to his stage name of Romane when he heard Angelo had named his son Romane - he thought that it sounded good. Can anyone confirm this or is it bollocks?

Mine was with an EP (do you recall, vinyl;-), but my record player is broken. It was as I remebered quite good, but again there must be better these days.

Oh of course, but in these days (83) it was nearly the only method with really started from scratch, although I'm not sure (I never went to Samois, yet...)
