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…

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

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

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…

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

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

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 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…

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

Simple but effective stuff from The Count! This comes from the tune “Bluebeard Blues,” from the radio broadcast of Jazz Club USA episode 16 on April 15, 1951.… More…

From “What Kind of Friend” (1947). The two things I love here are the syncopated motif and the Ab minor substitution (which I've marked in the notation).… 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…

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

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…

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

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…

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…

Awesome way to end a song here, from Johnny Smith! Super dissonant, then super straightforward/melodic. This is the ending for “It Could Happen To You” from Johnny’s 1955 album “Plays Jimmy Van Heusen.” More…
