YOU CAN BOOK FOR SOLO WITH RITARY OR RYTHME WITH HERVE

Introduction

Playing Django's music, what does it mean for me, Ritary Gaguenetti, gypsy guitarist.

Methodology

I want to organize this workshop around "sharing" and not teaching. I would like to make you live what we feel and experience, the Sinti, when we learn to play. I want to use the oral tradition for you to understand what I felt while I learnt, by watching and listening to my ancestors.

I'm not a teacher, therefore I do not want to establish a teacher/student relationship, but a musician to musician one instead.

This is the way I learnt and I propose to work like this during the workshop, knowing that you can use the scores that will be provided.

Agenda of the workshop

With all the students:

1- How to get correct sounds from the guitar. Indeed, (the right hand playing plays an essential role on the sound generated by the guitarist and his instrument.)
2- Show the right chords' positions on the most frequent suites. (Often the guitarists play the proper chords but not with the right positions, reason why they cannot make their chords suites sound like on the records)

After this, we can split the participants in 2 groups:

1st level: basic

2nd level: advanced

The 2 groups will work separately at the beginning. Each group will chose a piece to work from a proposed list.

The basic level group will mainly work the chords suites with Hervé and the theme (for those who can)

With the advanced group we will approach melodies, scales and improvisation.

On top of the chosen piece, I will propose to each group a "standard" of the gypsy jazz repertoire such as Limehouse blues or Django's Tiger?. Pieces made of chords suites often found in the repertoire and in other tones. This will enable you to adapt what you will learn in the workshop to other pieces of the gypsy repertoire.

At the end, we will play all together the pieces worked.

Take advantage of the master classes with our visiting musicians from Europe they can certainly point you in the right direction and save you a lot of wasted time - want to play "pompe" learn from the source Herve and Ritary are great players and great people too whose patience is boundless when helping people to master this style.
This weekend they are both doing workshops on the 21st Jan and then in concert 22nd 23rd with added dimension of a great young sax player
