Book/Online audio set. Focuses on the key elements of the Django Reinhardt Gypsy jazz or Manouche guitar style, gleaned from years of experience jamming with French Gypsies and studying with masters of the style. A native of France, Wrembel acquired his skills entirely by ear and has taught scores of musicians worldwide using this method. Taught in a logical, step by step manner, this covers authentic Manouche style as it continues to evolve. For the guitarist who is already familiar with jazz harmony and note locations on the fretboard. Intermediate/advanced. In English, German and French. Note/tab. 111 pp.
