Yup, they are open but may be full by now. Do you want me to investigate as it is only down the road for me...what days were you wanting? (I'm having 2 lots of campers in my large garden, if you are interested) Thank you but I always stay at the Samoreau campsite, that's where most of my friends go...

I got a beautiful surprise this morning when a package from Wayne Nakamura of hyperhipmedia.com came in the mail. An amazing fine print of Django, entitled "Django Reinhardt- Paris Swing" by Toronto-based artist Colleen Clancey. It's an original art piece of Django depicted with characteri...

The Cigano is the best of the budget options, by far. The one I tried, an oval hole, was better than any 200 series Gitane and pretty much on a par with the 300 Jorgenson model, but the later has a better (thicker) neck, 3x more expensive though. Djangobooks.com has them for $330 US, should be aroun...

"In the Style of Wawau Adler" DVD Review

I just got this and watched all in one sitting with my guitar. Man! There's a lot of stuff in there!
