Here’s an idea I came up with for “Nuages,” during bars 21-24, when it goes to C major. It’s a nice little counterpointy walkup thing. :-) More…

Happy new year! Appropriately, here’s one of the very first things I ever Soundsliced; I just realized I hadn’t yet posted it to my channel. Make sure to toggle the rhythm backing vs. lead guitar if you’d… More…

Here’s a small thing I made up. Could work well as an outro to a ballad in A major. More…

Here’s a little etude I wrote recently for myself to practice some new (to me) chord transitions and the gypsy picking technique. It’s over the changes of “Djangology.” I suppose you could even play it… More…

Just a little gypsy-jazz lick that fits nicely under the fingers. More…

Here’s an etude I made for beginning gypsy-jazz guitarists. Note you can change the recording to only hear the rhythm guitar vs. lead guitar vs. full mix (for practicing!). More…

Here’s my gypsy jazz arrangement of the Super Mario Bros. 2 overworld theme — as Django Reinhardt might have played it. :) More…

Here’s my arrangement of the Beatles’ Honey Pie, from a YouTube video I made in 2011. So many people have requested the tab over the years that I had to Soundslice it. More…

I’ve started recording my own gigs, to evaluate my own playing and try to remember some of the improvisations. Generally I’m not happy with my playing, but this particular “Nuages” solo actually turned… More…

Here’s something Romane taught us at Django In June 2019 last week — a blues accompaniment while keeping the same note in each voicing. Really nice. Note that I didn’t notate the various rhythmic hits/feel. More…

I’ve been following Isto on YouTube for more than 10 years — he’s got a lovely voice, great taste in repertoire, quirky sense of humor and an excellent fingerstyle guitar technique. He just posted this… More…

The most beautifully melodic improvised guitar solo of all time? Every jazz guitarist should learn this classic by Django.… More…

I love this simple but melodic idea from Joost Zoeteman — first over the C minor, then over the G minor. Sounds dissonant, but he’s just playing the flat third and natural sixth over both chords. More…

I love George Barnes’ sound — swinging, treble-heavy and unapologetically happy and humorful. This particular lick comes from “The Opener” on his 1973 album “Swing, Guitar!” More…

This Rick Beato instructional video is really great. He shows many beautiful guitar voicings, along with the “raw materials” on how you can figure them out for yourself by harmonizing the scale.… More…
