I usually only share final products of my gypsy jazz stuff but I figured since knowing the chords is fundamentally important for gypsy jazz(it's rarely one scale fits all kind of thing so you need to know the changes) I figured I'd share just me playing the chords.
I also love the happy vibe this particular song has and it's never had to share some happy vibes you know 😄
Posted this twice because I figured it fits in both tutorials and jazz.
Here’s an etude I wrote over one chorus of an old standard. The goal of this etude was to try to write lines that were breaking out of the fretboard shapes I felt too stuck in, to focus on triplets, focus on altered lines/tritone substitutions, and to try get any bebopish phrasing that I hopefully may have absorbed from listening to Charlie Parker that month. There’s a video of Syn improvising over the same standard on Instagram. Here’s the tab. Follow me on Instagram too!
I tried soloing over Djangology which definitely not easy to do and it's very much a work in progress still. I guess I'm gonna add some gypsy to my daily practice routine for a while(Improvising over minor swing, dark eyes, sweet georgia brown and Djangology doesn't sound that bad anyway 😊)
I'm practicing some arpeggios sequence and basically gypsy picking is hard to do when you go back down(or you know I have to get used to it). I also did a small solo guitar thing on Minor swing to practice applying the Arpeggios.
