Merry Christmas to all my GJ buddies... with special good wishes to my regular correspondants BluesBop Harry of Mexico City and Jazzaferri of Victoria BC.
You two guys have done so much to help me in my journey from "spectacularly incompetent GJ guitarist" to "mediocre GJ guitarist"! ---but, hey, if I keep practising, someday I may make it to "adequate GJ guitarist" assuming I live at least three times as long as Django did, and that my wife doesn't kill me with a kitchen knife when I play the same lick over and over and over and over....
Anyway, Django... he sends his Christmas wishes, too.
He appeared in a dream last night and told me that he wants all you guys to learn all his cool licks from "Hungaria" for Christmas.
And then he very thoughtfully broke his 32-bar chorus into short passages which, if you ask him nicely, he'll loop over and over (Command-L) and slow down to half speed (Command-K)...
Then I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight, "How hard can it be, gadjos? You can play this stuff with two fingers!"
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.
