The coolest la pompe I've heard played on electric guitar. Swing 39 plays "Swinging With Django"

I fell in love with this guy's rhythm playing the second I heard it and thought it was worth a share. Sounds really great!

    Thank you! Put those arch tops to work!

    I disagree. That's not la pompe at all. That's american swing played the american way (and there's nothing wrong with it)
  • What's the difference? I thought American/Western Swing was simply that it doesn't have an upstroke which I think I hear him playing.

    This is going to open up that old swing rhythm v le pompe argument - been discussed on here many times before - and it seems some still can't tell the difference.

    Eps, yeah kinda cool but def not pompe and there are big differences between American/western swing and GJ rhythm. It's been discussed a LOT. Just search the forum (use the search tool) and you'll get more info than you need to get up to speed on this topic.
