Here’s my own fingerstyle arrangement of the lovely jazz standard by Jimmy Van Heusen. More…

Here’s a little exercise I just came up with, to develop the dexterity for my third and fourth fingers. Lots of times these sorts of exercises aren’t very musical, so I wanted something that actually sounds… 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 a small thing I made up. Could work well as an outro to a ballad in A major. More…

Error!

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…

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…

This is a nice exercise for practicing different voicings for the repetitive Gm7-C7 in “Honeysuckle Rose.” In the B section, it’s got the classic walkup. More…

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

Here’s my latest fingerstyle arrangement for YouTube, the classic jazz standard. More…

Here's my new fingerstyle arrangement of the classic Game Boy theme. 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…

Error!

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…

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…

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

Error!

Here’s a small but nice lick from Gwen Cahue. It’s over “Blues en mineur” (G minor blues) from his new album “Memories of Paris.” 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…

The A flat note when the chord changes to G7... So so good. More…

Error!

Nice and exotic sounding outro here, despite only using two chord voicings. More…

Error!

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…

A straightforward but nice 1-6-2-5 intro from the tune “A Fine Romance,” from the 1961 album “Weaver of Dreams.” More…

@LyleBrewerMusic has been posting some nice guitar etudes and challenging people to do Soundslice covers. Here's the only one I've managed to get under my fingers so far. :) More…

Here’s a nice chordal walkdown lick from Chet’s 1978 album “Reflections” with Doc Watson. The tune is “Dill Pickle Rag.”… 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…

So beautiful. Django outlines a substitute alt chord going from Eb to Eb7 into the bridge of “(I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons,” from 1947. More…

Rounding out my recent Boulou transcriptions, here’s a nice short idea over the changes of “What Is This Thing Called Love.” From a performance of “Subconscious Lee” on the live album “Nuages.” More…

Error!

This is one of those licks that’s purely guitaristic. No real music theory behind it, as far as I can tell — just a repeated pattern down the strings.… More…

Error!

Here’s an exercise I learned from somebody at Django In June a few years ago (I forget from whom).… More…

Error!

This little motif by Boulou brings a huge smile to my face. It’s just so dissonant-but-beautiful in that Django way. From now on, I shall always play this during that moment of Nuages. :-) More…

Are your fingers properly stretched? They’d better be, if you want to play these beautiful, lush chord voicings from Johnny Smith. This comes from his classic Moonlight In Vermont album with Stan Getz.… More…
