Thankfully I speak French. :) The Videos demonstrating "La Pompe" were really informative for a relative GJ newbie like myself. I really like that he presented the "don't do it this way" version.

Thanks for the heads up!

Seems to be a very nice site, by the look of it.
Sadly, I don´t understand a single word. :cry:
Pity! I really would like to read the text and I think I could learn a lot from it.

I think Yann, who made the site, is working on a translation in English, all the topics are not available yet, so you'll have to be patient!

Hello,

Just to let you know, I have finished the translation in English.

http://www.serendipity-band.com/misc/manouche/src/toc-en.htm

It may not be written in high quality English though (not my mother tongue) but you should get an idea anyway... I hope you'll like it. By the way, if you come across blatant errors or things that are not described clearly or accurately, don't hesitate to let me know on my email address: caroffy@hotmail.com. Cheers.

Thanks Matt for posting about my site in here!

Hi there,

I have updated my site. The pompe examples were not so good so I made 4 new films and removed the old ones. Also, I have added 11 licks.

Pompe: http://www.serendipity-band.com/misc/manouche/src/pompe-en.htm#pompe-standard
Licks: http://www.serendipity-band.com/misc/manouche/src/plans-en.htm#plan-6

Hope you'll like them.

Feedback welcome. :)

Cheers,

Yann

Hello,

A quick update about a new page on my site: it's about typical scales and several workout exercises:

I hope you'll find it useful. In any case, feedback is welcome.

Cheers,

Yann

Hi Yann,

I love your site :D there's so much stuff and it's all really high quality. Starting today Sundays are officially Gypsy Jazz Sundays on my blog, so I just linked to your page (as well as Emicad's and a couple of others.) Please keep me updated and thanks for all your hard work.

Cheers,
Andy

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the kind words. I'll post here to tell you when the new section about picking accuracy is ready (some time this week I guess).

By the way, any suggestions for the site ? Are there things that are not so clear or topics I have left aside ?

Cheers,

Yann

PS: I too have listed emicad's site from the table of contents. :)

if anybody has any trouble with foreign lauguage sites use babel fish


http://babelfish.altavista.com/babelfish


you can enter a sites url and it will translate the whole site for you, or sections ( makes for some funny readings as well)
