From Samois 2010. This was played over the B section of “Dinette.” 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…

Error!

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…

Error!

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

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…

Error!

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!

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…

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!

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!

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

Error!

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

Error!

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

Error!

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…

Error!

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!

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…

Error!

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…

Error!

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

Sean posted this exercise on Instagram yesterday (https://www.instagram.com/p/BoX8_NCl8LO/), saying "it's the best guitar exercise I know," so I had to Soundslice it. It's a chromatic scale in octaves,… More…

Error!

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

Error!

Man, this intro. I’ve never come across most of these voicings before. From the 1958 Julie London album “Julie Is Her Name, Vol. 2.” More…

Error!

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

Error!

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

The diminished color in this intro is classic Django! More…
