Description by

The music of Django Reinhardt is as important today as it has ever been. Blending jazz and Gypsy influences, his exuberant solos and incisive rhythm playing have fascinated and tantalized guitarists for half a century.

In this book, leading jazz writer Dave Gelly considers Django's life and recordings and explains exactly why he sounded the way he did.

Meanwhile, guitarist and teacher Rod Fogg shows how you can achieve that sound yourself, with the help of detailed transcriptions of six of Django's most celebrated and exciting numbers. Includes a CD with all six numbers accurately recorded from the transcriptions for you to follow, the low-down on Django's favorite guitars and recommendations for further listening and reading.

Product Description:

Launching the new Fretmaster series, this book is part biography and part teaching guide. It goes inside the story of the accident in which Django Reinhardt lost the full use of his left hand and provides in-depth analysis of this artist's technique, tone, and harmonic approach. The accompanying CD includes eight of Reinhardt's classic original recordings as well as newly recorded backing tracks without lead guitar for perfect practice sessions. Django Reinhardt allows guitarists to get closer than ever to the bewitching, addictive, and at times bewildering technique of this guitar great.
