This round of Gypsy Jazz Boot Camp will focus on for hand-picked solos of Django Reinhardt. These solos are from the early era of Django’s recording career. This workshop is perfect for the beginner/intermediate player. However, advanced players can always learn so much from studying Django Reinhardt solos!

The solos are simple and perfect. Like mini compositions. Tracy will (carefully and slowly) teach each song and solo note for note, rhythm for rhythm, with analysis of every phrase and lick. This way, the player can really understand and learn from Django, the master jazz improviser. They can then take these techniques, tricks, concepts and licks and apply them to other songs and improvisations. of course, the chord progression will be analyzed along with chord shapes for accompaniment

Here are the four songs and solos that Tracy will be teaching specifically for this workshop: All of Me, Blue Drag, Viper’s Dream, My Melancholy Baby

This online workshop is open to all instruments. Tabs will be provided for guitar, mandolin, and ukulele. Standard notation for other instruments. This will truly be a great study into the mind and soul of Django Reinhardt.
