I'm afraid my unsubstantiated claim carries more weight than your "facts" because I have more posts than all of you combined. True, or tells us that you spend more time posting than playing :twisted: I'm Kidding, I'm Kidding! :oops: Sorry Nick! It was just sitting out there, perfect compo...

Supposedly Stephane was really cheap, and used cheap violins so that he wouldn't have to worry about them on the gig and travelling. For the last decade or so he used two, one was made by American jazz guitar builder Benedetto, this is the one in the museum. Not sure what the other one was, but it w...

Zoot - Still looking for my Joseph documentation, it's buried at the bottom of one of many boxes that haven't been unpacked since moving. Please standby. Montange released one EP under his own name and guested on another album by John O'Brien Docker called "Gipsy Swing" released on Columbi...

You have to be careful with Joe, his discography is very confusing. There were three different albums titled "Hommage a Django" - one acoustic, one electric but same tracks were recorded on each. To further confuse things, there was another electric album released with the "Hommage a...

No, but it looks like a winner as long as the transcriptions are accurate. We're long overdue for a good Django fakebook, too.

He's playing an older Saga (I believe) import. Notice how it sounds like exactly every other guitar he's been recorded playing? Loutcha is the name of the mother of his child.

Bireli & Jimmy Bruno

Hey Guys,

I've seen some photos floating around of Bireli jamming with Jimmy Bruno. Was anyone from this site there to witness the event?

Best,
