Product Description

They don’t call it “hot guitar” for nothing! The driving style pioneered by Django Reinhardt and other Gypsy players became one of the dominant sounds in jazz during the thirties and forties, and its influence is still strongly felt today. Paul Mehling knows the style as well as anyone, and he takes it apart in detail for the learning player.

A band won’t swing without a strong rhythm section, and the powerful guitar accompaniment that typifies the Gypsy style is the foundation of this terrific lesson. Starting with basic four-to-the-bar comping and damping, Paul takes you through a variety of accompanyment ideas: arpeggios, “splayed” chords, “the gallop,” chord tremolo, right hand speed and other advanced techniques.

You’ll gain an understanding of the particular harmonic structures of this music through chord voicings, progressions, and accompaniments to classics such as “Minor Blues,” “Orie ntal Shuffle” and “I’ll See You In My Dreams.” Paul also provides invaluable advice on learning from recordings, use of the metronome, and a look at his rare Maurice DuPont guitars. Includes some hot jamming with Paul and Tony Mandraccia, rhythm guitar.
