Improvisation either one or two are they too advanced for a beginner?

No.1 is too advanced for advanced! I'd go for No.2 first, although I think it's less relevant for building chops in this style, being a fingerpicking piece. I'd advise you to try Improvisation No.4 parts 1 &/or 2.

The first improvisaion does have a lot of the classic "power licks" like the three octave diminished run which is actually two put together. Jazz Hot has the first part. The two descending chromatic tremolo lines are great for getting the downstroke from higher to lower string. Then you have great chord passages that give you a great lesson on his chord voicings and strumming techniques. There's a lot of great stuff packed into that three minutes.

Mobie I see you have started using one of my unfinished Django sketches as your Avatar. That will be £5 per post royalties please. :D

Wait a few weeks for Michael Horowitz's Unaccompanied Django book. An unbelievable amount of work went into this book. It is the treasure trove
you've been waiting for. If you can't get inside Django's head with this, it can't be done.

That is amazing! I like the use of color and the play on light! And Imagine you sketched it by hand! How did you get it so small? Tiny pencils? Id go blind doing that kind of artwork! Man hats off to you!

Hey Mobie. He's not kidding. He's a 6'4 kick boxing champion so don't take what he says lightly.

It's based on this much larger rudimentary and unfinished sketch I did many years ago. I tinted it for Francois Rousseau and he reduced it to suit what he was after.

That was a very silly comment about ballet dancing Cabo. :evil: You know I had to give it up years ago after a serious groin strain sustained whilst trying to lift both Darcy Bussell and Kylie at the same time.

As a fellow artist, I actually realize the difficulty in the 2/3rds downward turn on the head and the difficulty at getting the perspective correct,(and you did very well) and as for my hats-off comment I ment that really because of the perspective.

Was it an insinuation, or a statement of fact. I know a man here in town who is a ballet dancer and is not poofty at all.

They were a bit garish weren't they? It must have been an Andy Warhol phase. How about this for more sombre:-
