Rino van Hooijdonk course: Django-style fills

adrianadrian AmsterdamVirtuoso


Hi all,

I'm excited to announce a brand-new instructional course by the great Rino van Hooijdonk!

Rino is a master of Django-style fills — rhythmic accents and other interesting things to play when you're accompanying another soloist. The voicings, the phrasing, the ideas...the "Djangoness."

Fellow Rino fan Nick Sansone here in Amsterdam has been itching to make an instructional course about this "lost art," and I worked with him to produce this course. It's solely about fills, and it launched today.

The material is not quite lead playing, and it's not quite rhythm playing. It's something in between. And to my knowledge there's never been an instructional course devoted to this oft-overlooked aspect of Django's playing.

Our approach was to put Rino in as many musical situations as possible, to provide as many fill ideas as possible.

Have a look at the promo page for lots more information, including the list of tunes:

https://www.soundslice.com/store/django-style-fills/

It's a Soundslice course, which means everything is synced with a transcription in tab and standard notation, plus practice tools like looping/slowdown. It also means a majority of the proceeds go directly to Rino.

Hope you enjoy. I'm obviously biased (having helped put the course together), but I think it's an absolute gold mine.

    Just bought it... Christmas came early this year!

    Congratulations to all of you, Adrian, Nick and Rino, for an outstanding execution of an outstanding idea.

    I've been skipping around just to see what's on there, some great stuff!

    One question: in the section called "Semitone dissonance" Rino plays a lovely ballad which is unidentified... what's the name of that tune?

    I live in a little tourist town called Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, Canada, which is about twenty miles north of Niagara Falls.

    If you are ever planning on visiting the beautiful Niagara area, feel free to PM me and perhaps we can get together and do some jamming.
  • Just get this course for me!Thanks Adrian!

  • What a great idea!
    As cool as it looks and I'm tempted...one of the more important lessons I got was from Rino when in his Django in June class people asked him to teach the intro to Patrus videos. And he did. And people inevitably kept asking over and over "wait how did that part go". And Rino said, very patiently mind you: "we can do this but it would be much better if you came up with something your own".

    Shortcuts are awesome though, thanks guys.
