In this follow up to my Introduction to Gypsy Jazz course, we will get into harmony. I will show you a trick that will unlock countless harmonic possibilities and bring your soloing to the next level! We will start adding color to our arpeggios and begin to build a bank of material for our solos.
Inspired by the legendary Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt, Alex Simon

Honey, Bathtub Gin, NoMad, Happy Ending and many other of New York
City’s finest venues.

Bossas, Boleros, Rumbas, Mambos, Gypsy Valses, and original works.
