An absolutely catastrophic picking technique from Serge here. :shock: Has the man never had sufficient self-respect to read an authentic Gypsy Jazz technique manual?:-

SERGE KRIEF - Minor Swing

Odd though how he sounds so good, isn't it? :? :roll:

Serge is the absolute business. I thought the set was a bit naff, though.

If you can get by the first 30 secs, he does a quite impressive imitation of early Django here - no doubt with a more "acceptable" technique.

Can anyone post that bit from "The Django Legacy" where he's playing with Richard Chiche in the park at night? I think it was Rose Room they played. I also think I've asked for this before and been ignored.

Sorry no but I can post a great clip of me smashing up a mandolin with a new hammer.

Surely any self-respecting guitarist would have clips of himself doing that?

Here's the Legacy footage of Krief and Chiche playing over the changes to Rose Room, no park though.

Thanks Jack, although that isn't it. The clip I'm on about was directly after that one and probably isn't "Rose Room" (I spoke to someone once who seemed to remember the moment too and said it was Rose Room). In those days I didn't know what any of them were called; I just liked the music.

It was a long time ago and, for me, it was the highlight of the entire documentary. They were in a park, at night, over-looking Paris and looking(and sounding) as cool as anyone I've ever seen playing a guitar.

Does anyone else remember it or did I dream it?

Relax. Senile dementia has not set in early. Your memory is correct. They played "Nuits de St Germain des Pres". Unfortunately I do not have the technology to up-load my video copy to the internet.

Thanks Teddy, do you know if there's a transcription to that version and where I might find it? Ta.

I'm afraid I have never seen one and I doubt whether anything exists. It is only a short sequence.

But perhaps as a consolation, listen to this made many, many years before which accounts for the crackling:-

I guessed as much but am still looking forward to hearing it again one day.
Thanks for the upload, it sounds quite Eastern, doesn't it?

"Blues Mineur" from the Django Legacy is brilliant:
