Learn 12 MORE great Gypsy Swing/Hot Club standards (see song list below left) in the style of Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli and The Quintette of the Hot Club of France.

Just like with the original set, you'll play along with a great Gypsy Swing Rhythm Section and learn chords, comping, and melodies, then let the band back you up as you practice chords and soloing. You play all the leads while the band backs you up. Beginners can practice basic skills while more advanced players can hone their improvisation chops, each at their own individual learning pace.

/>You'll learn moveable closed position swing/jazz chords and practice playing them with the swing guitar comp. We've also included information on basic chord substitution along with exercises on transposing melodies and chord progressions to different keys. These are essential skills for any swing/jazz musician. You'll also explore some basic chord melody passages!
/>Book/CD set Includes standard notation, tablature, chord diagrams, lyrics, playing tips, and more. Each song is presented on the CD at slow and regular speed. First you'll hear the melody played on guitar at a slow speed with just guitar backup, then it's repeated at regular speed with the band. The back up band is a classic Hot Club- style rhythm section with two acoustic rhythm guitars, string bass. Songs may be repeated, at slow or regular speed, as many times as you wish in order to perfect phrases, melodies and solos in a band context.
