Gypsy Jazz Bites - Free Django Reinhardt Style Guitar Mini Lessons with JONNY HEPBIR.

These mini lessons contain different techniques for improving left/right hand co-ordination whether you're a beginner or more advanced player.

I've recorded a series of these free lessons which I'll be releasing over the next few months, the video above is the fifth one.

Gypsy Jazz Bites 5 - Minor Swing Study.

This is a short study over the chord sequence of Django Reinhardt's famous composition, Minor Swing.

The 'A' section has a classical feel with ascending string-skips on the 'D' and 'B' strings starting on the 5th fret.

The 'B' section is a descending arpeggio sequence on the 'A', 'D' and 'G' strings starting on the 5th fret.

I demonstrate each part slowly and then together slightly faster.

As with all the Gypsy Jazz Bites videos, the phrases/rhythms can be used in different contexts over songs played in a Gypsy Jazz style.

Gypsy Jazz guitar lessons available one-to-one, online and workshops.
