I have this on an LP and could never work out if it was my turntable or the original,but it's in between the two. i copied it to a wav and tuned it in Transcribe to Cm so i could learn it, but my question is - what key did the HCF do it in? it's likely Stephane would have preferred it in Bm...? and ...

Hi Weelie My first gypsy guitar was a Woodland oval hole from Søren at Palm guitars. He's great to deal with, I get my Argentines from him mostly (sorry Zoot :oops: ). But the Woodland is a thin sounding instrument, it's not a domed top and doesn't sound quite right to my inexperienced ears. I think...

Hi again Micky You can find a list of jazz festivals in Australia at http://www.jazz.adelaide.onau.net/othfests.htm - i'm doubtful how much gypsy jazz content there may be. Have to say I've ordered a Piers Crocker Oval Hole!! woo-hoo! They're are not cheap, but Ian says they are worth it - so does P...

Apropos of this topic, a friend recently found the November 1976 issue of Guitar Player dedicated to our hero, and passed it on to me. Amongst many other quotes and interviews, this from Barney Kessel: 'Mostly, Django was a master improviser; I wouldn't call him a "jazz" player.......He ju...

Mandino Reinhardt Video

yep. it's an instructional video, but for me anyway, the left hand fingering and right hand positioning and picking sequences are vital - i have to say that i have never seen a gypsy guitarist live - so i'm learning heaps! :D

I recently got the Mandino Reinhardt video demonstrating the Minor Swing (1937) solo. great stuff!! the right hand closeups are brilliant. It's called 'le Guitare Manouche - Vol. 1 Le solo de Minor Swing (1937)' - you have to email ATEMA Alsace - culturel.atema@wanadoo.fr. It's in French, but it's s...

Thanks Stu
I met Ian back in February when he was here with George. I'll look out for David. Ian himself is an inspirational player. Had a Selmer with him as well as a guitar made by Piers Crocker from Sydney.
cheers

Gypsy Jazz in OZ

Hi Micky. Well, I'm not sure about earning your keep! but I'm sure there's places where you can play. I live in Brisbane, and I only know a few people around town interested in Gypsy Jazz. I've started a hot-club style group, and we're starting to get a bit of interest from venues and are playing a ...

Serge Krief

Thanks for this link thrip. It's rare to find this much material available on the web and where i live there's not much opportunity to buy or hear this music live or on CD, or even play it with others. It's just great! It's an interesting point though: has genre-hopping successfully been done by any...

Playing and picking

Hi all - Larry I've been playing for 35 years, professionally for a large slice of that, and across most styles. I came to Manouche jazz via Sweet and Lowdown and Swing - though i remember being struck by what i now know is Dorado and Tchavolo at the restaurant table in Latcho Drom playing Tchavolo ...
