Django recorded this one many times, and he always played so nicely on it. Here I’ve transcribed the entire solo. 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…

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…

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…

Nice jazzy voicings here over a 2-5-1 in G major. More…

Error!

So good! Here I’ve attempted to do a guitar reduction of this fantastic shout chorus by the Modern Art Orchestra. It comes from the album “Tribute To Stephane And Django” by Roby Lakatos and Bireli Lagrene… More…

I learned this one at Django In June a few weeks ago. At first glance, it seems like a finger dexterity exercise, because it’s not very melodic and it involves moving certain fingers while keeping other… More…

Error!

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

Error!

From the tune “Hootchie Koo” from Kenny Burrell’s 1961 album “Weaver of Dreams.” The album mostly consists of Kenny’s singing, but it has some good guitar playing too. More…

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…

Error!

Super-fast and “outside” intro here from Jonathan. I could definitely see using this in a gypsy-jazz setting. More…

Error!

I love this solo guitar piece by Costa Lukacs and even covered it for YouTube several years ago. Here’s my transcription of his performance. More…

Error!

This is either Billy Strayhorn or Duke Ellington — I don’t know their styles well enough to be able to distinguish. It comes from a “C Jam Blues” piano duet they did, which was broadcast on the radio program… 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…

A couple of nice substitutions in this one. From the 1969 Jack McDuff LP “Steppin’ Out.” More…

A very nice intro here from Adrien’s 2007 recordings with the singer Lemmy Constantine. The album is “Meeting Sinatra & Django.” I left in the first few words of Lemmy’s (highly questionable) singing for… More…

Error!

This tasteful guitar interlude comes from Jo Stafford’s 1945 recording with Paul Weston And His Orchestra. I needed to do some Internet sleuthing to confirm who the guitarist was...the great George Van… More…

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

Error!

A nice rhythm idea that I hadn’t come across, plus some quick licks. From Adrien’s DjangoFest Northwest workshop last week. Thanks to Paul Sommer for posting this video to YouTube! More…

Here’s a soul-jazz solo I discovered by a guitarist who’s unfortunately uncredited on the recording. It’s from the 1967 album “Honky Tonk Organ” by Bill Doggett. It might be Billy Butler, but that’s just… More…

Classic Django-y ideas over G minor blues. More…

Big news for Django fans: a new live recording was unearthed and shared online. It’s Django playing with the ATC Band on Dec. 16, 1945. Here’s the full transcription of all six choruses by Django over… More…

Here’s a beautiful intro by Antoine from the first track of his album “Sita.” More…

I just discovered this great fingerstyle tune from Chet Atkins’ 1968 album Solo Flights and written by Jerry Reed. Such a tasty, bluesy melody! More…

One of my favorite Adrien videos — finally transcribed! It took me a while to do, but it’s worth it for the many nice moments. More…

I’ve been playing around with making exercises based on a simple scale, where I take a chord voicing I like and increment each of its notes by a scale step. It can reveal some beautiful new voicings! Here’s… 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…

Error!

Adrien and Benoit! This transcription was done by Denis Chang; I merely added the rhythmic values and Soundsliced it. More…

From the classic recording of “Cry Me A River” by Julie London. 1955. More…

I made this one up to practice lots of consecutive downstrokes. The time feel of it is really odd, despite it being in 4/4! More…
