    Hey you guys. This is actualy another Gypsy Jazz deal but it was kinda fun to try. It's a bit spaz but...Anyways it's appropriately named "What Just Happened". I'm going to do some more electric stuff soon but I thought you guys might get a giggle or two. Go to the link and it should be the first tune I Hope! Technology is not my friend lately.

    Hey Shawn,

    had a quick listen - really dig your playin' man. The gypsy jazz stuff is not really my thing normally, yet I did enjoy your tracks - brings a smile to my face, kind of joyful music to me :)

    I'd love to hear you do some more tracks or even a full cd of stuff like the "Test Run" track - to my ear, very Landau-esque and cool vibe.

    Looking forward to hearing more music from you.

    Regards,
    Graeme.

    Very cool :BEER, I like that gypsy stuff alot. Did you also play the rhythm guitar?

    What I would like to know is which guitar builders are making good "Django" or Maccaferri/Selmer style guitars today. Any tips of makers/makes to check out??

    Thanks Guys,

    It's just kind of a fun style. It's funny how guitarists who aren't even really into this stuff will sit through a few tunes. I'm pretty hooked on Gypsy Jazz but I'm still into that rock and roll those kids listen to. I'm still in search of tone always.

    Thanks for listening you guys

    Shawn

    What can I say- that was great! This is the type of stuff that I like to listen to now and again- I don't know a hell of a lot about it, but it really boogies along- kind of a ragtime feel to it. I really enjoyed that, thanks.

    I'm a pretty good Dad and my daughters think I'm pretty cool so I guess that makes me a somebody but the girls are 2 and 5 years old so the clock is unfortunately ticking on that one... They'll be teenagers sooner than I think and I'll be hearing that tune by the Beatles over and over again..Hows it go? "He's a real nowhere man..":jo Thanks for the very kind words!!

    Shawn

    Very nice, indeed. I think Django has been reincarnated. :)

    Always been a fan of the Rosenbergs and Django & Grapelli.

    Wow!! Your very kind. Only in my wildest of imagination but thank you!! It's crazy that Django played the things he played with basically the use of his first 2 fingers and a thumb on his left hand. I'll never play the things he played even if I borrowed a couple more fingers.


    Stochelo and Jimmy Rosenberg pretty much haunt me but I truly lose sleep when I hear Bireli Lagrene play Gypsy Jazz. If you haven't seen the Bireli and freinds DVD, do yourself a favor and get it. Not only is Stochelo playing with Bireli, but Angelo Debarre,Tchavalo Schmitt and ....It's a clash of the Gypsy Jazz titans!!And Florin Niculescu on violin is just amazing.

    Thanks for the comment

    Shawn, is there a book I could get to show me how to get into those great gypsy jazz riffs? I'm would probably be considered an "advanced" (Chet) picker, but not in the gypsy jazz or even jazz genres, and I play by ear although I can read music. Where do you START with this kind of stuff? Thanks, Mark

    The right hand technique for Gypsy Jazz is what will kill you at first but if your a Chet guy you should have no problem grasping the concepts of the riffs themselves. They are really quite simple. Here is a link to a site that has a bunch of great books.

    http://www.djangobooks.com/

    Lots of great books. You should check out Gypsy Fire since your advanced and then get a couple live DVDs while your at it so you can see and hear what these dudes are doing. The Rosenberg Trio, Bireli Lagrene, Angelo Debbare are may faves. Especially Bireli.

    Have fun!

    Great stuff Shawn!

    I saw Angelo Debarre last year in Redwood City CA at the Djangofest and he was astonishing! He's got some music out with an equally phenomenal accordian player (forgetting his name at the moment) that will blow your mind.

    Angelo and Bireli are pretty much theeee guys as far as the Gypsy Jazz community is concerned. Those poor Jazz accordian players. They always do stuff that would actualy make a guy defend accordians to some degree but ....I can't remember that dudes name either.

    Thanks for the listen :)
