John Jorgenson – Intermediate Gypsy Jazz Guitar
Aug 23 2016
This has got to be the best way to learn to play this kind of music! The DVD, CD, and tab – it’s all there. The second installment of John’s Gypsy Jazz instructional series, targeted for players who have mastered the content of the first DVD and who are looking to sharpen their skills with more advanced techniques.
Book, DVD, CD set. Continues with characteristic Gypsy style licks and techniques based on the arpeggios and patterns taught in the first volume. Jorgenson presents a very systematic learning method, first teaching simple licks and techniques and building to more complex material. In studying the left and right hand techniques and ornamentations presented, you’ll gain an understanding of how to play with the Gypsy “accent.” Jorgenson also teaches an improvised chorus that Django played on a recorded version of the song “Undecided.” Two other songs, Raul Reyno.
No matter what your style of playing you can’t go wrong with this book. One of the best DVD instructionals.
This is an excellent intermediate book for learning Gypsy Jazz style guitar, which was originally invented and made famous by Django Reinhardt.
Instead of teaching you song after song, this book shows you licks that are patterned after the Man himself for Gypsy Jazz Style Guitar. John Jorgenson’s DVD that comes in the book is 2 hours long and steps you through the book.
