Description
Learn 29 great swing standards in the style of Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli, and the Quintette of the Hot Club of France. 110-page book plus play-along audio. Download and jam along with a great Gypsy Swing band, learn mandolin chords, comping, melodies, then let the band back you up as you solo. We will jam all night long! Learn moveable closed-position swing/jazz chords and the swing mandolin rhythm comp. Printed music includes standard notation, mandolin tablature, chords, lyrics. Almost 200 minutes of play-along audio plus bonus downloadable music and exercises. Read along as you play along. Each recorded song is presented at slow and regular speed. First, youwill hear the melody played at a slow speed with just guitar backup, then it is repeated at regular speed with the band. The backup band is a classic Hot Club-style rhythm section with two acoustic rhythm guitars and string bass. (The ensemble also includes rhythm mandolin.) Finally, the band plays several choruses, and you play all the leads. Songs may be repeated, at slow or regular speed, as many times as you wish to perfect phrases, melodies, and solos in a band context. Potential for improvement is unlimited. Beginners in the style can practice basic skills while more advanced players can hone their improvisation chops, each at their own individual learning pace. Aimed at intermediate to advanced mandolinists. Also available for guitar.
