I just found out how to do it. I suppose it would be more core if I got rid of it though....

He was a great guitarist and musician. As much as his guitar style evolved it never lost the swing feel. I love the song "Django's Tiger".

he was probably the founder of modern jazz guitar

i cant remember who it was - either Grant Green or Wes, but one of them did a song called "Django" - actually, i think it was Grant and it was on the "Idle Moments" album.

Yeah, I dig Django. I also like Joe Pass' material, he has sort of Django-like style. And his technique is just plain incredible. I once saw his tutorial video where he played improvised lines where he was controlling walking bass-lines, chords and melody at the same time with up-beat tempo. It was just unbelievable.

django was the first great jazz guitarists and i agree with you, cerebrotonico (sorry if i spelt it wrong) jazz guitarists are always left in the shadows when talking about the greatest guitarists - pat metheny, john scofield and wes m. are some of the most technically and musically gifted guitarists i have ever heard yet they never get in the greatest guitarist polls because - not meaning to be rude - some people just cant understand jazz and some people dont even try to understand jazz so these fine musicians are ignored by the general public. however, i am extremely thankful to the gods that PAT METHENY IS COMING TO ADELAIDE (where i live)!!!! ive already booked tickets at great expense and i cant wait till March next year when ill see him as part of the adelaide festival!

yea his curtains caught on fire, and while trying to put them out, he seriously burnt them, his hand was all mutilated. but could still play amazingly, with just two fingers left, that were able to play.

and yea django is amazing, songs such as "rose room" "embraceable you" and "daphne" are really cool.

(if you like django watch woody allen's "sweet and lowdown". (not based on real life))
