Hi there!
I'm a 26 year-old guy from Norway. Started playing gypsy-guitar about a year ago, really happy about my Gitane DG-255. Here I'll be posting clips and thoughts on tunes I'm working with.
First out I've been working on Romane Manouche Transcr. on Swing For Ninine. I warmly recommend the book "E'sprit Manouche" it's great! I still have some work regarding time/feel/teq but here goes:

    Amazing, you did a stellar job for only 1 year. You must be a pretty high level already on guitar to get that good so quickly!

    I agree it is a good book and romane is a great teacher. \m/

    The only thing I can recommend is on the right hand wrist angle, it is quite flat which I think is resulting in a somewhat thin/weak sound. If you "break" the wrist and then pick INTO the guitar a bit more (rather than "across" the guitar like you get with a straight wrist), then I think you will find a more powerful tone and more gypsy sound quite easily.

    Good work and thanks for the nice video :)

    Thanks a lot for the nice comments and tips! WIM, thanks for the heads-up on hand position, guess I should spend a little more each day in the beginning of practice focusing on that alone. I will post more videos facing straight camera, I really could need more comments on my development on this as I have no teacher(well, romane is sort of).

    Yes, I've played regular electric alternate picking style for many years, but this is the first acoustic instrument style I have really dug into and I'm hooked:)

    I had never realized before how much his 3 fingers were actually hitting the top of the guitar as much. Beautiful, Thanks!

    Wow, super view and super solo. It's amazing how free and loose, yet powerful, his righthand moves. Thanks man =)

    That's the best wrist on the planet, no doubt!
    Super awesome video, thanks for posting Wim.

    @a_onarheim what's the pick you're using? Seems thin.

    I was thinking the same thing. If this is what he always does, it's a big part of his sound. It gives it percussiveness and makes it so very unique.

    ah I see, just seemed so on the video.

    Do try to follow Wim's advice about the wrist, it can make a major change for the better in your tone.
    But you're doing super well already.
