There's no such thing as a wrong note. I like the sound of that world! That lesson would be a great experience for so many of those kids.

The man went out while still at the top of his game. Though I can't help feeling that's not a great pay-off for passing at only 73.

Truly one of the guitar greats of all time. :pray:

Shame that so much jazz playing involves long stretches and use of the left hand pinkie. Off limits to me these days.

Thanks for posting these video links. :thumbsup:

About Django, imagine what he could have play with 4 fingers! :icon_whoknows:
This also demonstrate how important is chord voicing... Pay attention to his strumming... :shy: Woe is me
It makes me think of the great Freddie Green "Master of Single Note Chord"!
You eventually like giving a look at http://www.freddiegreen.org/,
full of valuable analysis and tabs of his work (so subtle filling of the "niche" in between bass and drums :pray: ) with Count Basie Big Band :cool:
