not really any particular song. the rythm to me sounds like a very fast freddie green style "boom chick" style rythm but everytime you play a boom after a chick you change bass notes to make a walking bass sound this is only preiminary listening please correct me if I am wrong.

playing Csardas

Hey everyone. I have been listening to quite a bit Schnuckenack lately and was wondering if anyone had any ideas on playing Csardas. is there a traditional style of Rhythm playing aside from la pompe (Michael Horowitz Maybe?) any ideas for basic chord progressions to get started with them?
Thanks

I have to agree, being a dj at the colege radio station here at FSU I always find a way to work in some Gypsy stuff. Usually some Bireli or Rosenberg trio (and not to forget John Jorgenson who sent a copy of his new cd for the station). and every time I play some stuff. I immediatley get a good numb...

Scot, I whole heartedly agree. I think I should have qualified my quoting of Robin Nolan. I meant it more of a response to those (not necesarily anyone here) who feel that to play this type of Music one must copy either the exact way that Gypsies in Europe play or that one should copy Djangos solos....

I would have to say I agree with Robin Nolan(from the afterward in his first Songbook) as an American this is not my legacy. I love this music, and I do think of it as a viable form of Jazz and the great thing about Jazz is the Improvising. Although I learned the Minor Swing(37) solo note for note I...

I'll be there this year. Can't wait to put some faces with internet handles. I have a question about the workshops though. do you pay for them when you sign up or do you just get your name down and pay for it when you take it?
