I am just starting my adventure in gypsy jazz and am working out of the Jorgenson book/dvd/cd combo.
First of all, any comments on this book would be appreciated. Have people had any good experiences with it? Any bad? Is ia good overall introduction or should I look else where?
One specific question have is whether or not I should be getting used to playing leads with two fingers like Jorgenson seems to do. This is not natural for me as I have learned to play the guitar using more then just these two fingers as Jorgenson does, which I understand is how Django played the tunes due to his loss of finger movement. My question in short then is is it important to play Django style leads with just two fingers or is it okay to go on as I have been?
One more question, again concerning the topic of fingers. Jorgenson uses a lot of bar chords in the book and it has been my impression that Django used only the three note chords. Should I learn the chords both ways or just focus on the three note chords?
And last but not least, can any one give me the chords or direct me to the chords for "Dark Eyes"?
thanks a bunch!!!
