Jean Barault graciously lent me his official 503 selmer replica to record this little tribute... it is the best gypsy jazz guitar i've ever played... the neck is big, the string gauge is heavy, yet it feels like absolute butter!! and the sound is absolutely incredible... i'm usually not a gear freak but this guitar blew me away!!! i wish i could afford it though...

anyway here it is, with mister Timmy K on fidaddle

    OMG, Denis, that's fabulous! The guitar sounds wonderful, but the real fun of this video is the recreation by you and Tim of the classic Django/Stephane recording. Thanks! I'm going to be sending this to all my gadjo friends.

    Beautiful! I'm usually not a big fan of note-for-note recreations but this one's beaut indeed. It had me toe-tappin' and head-bobbin' for sure! Nice tribute brothers.

    Agreed, Eddy. This one is done with such good taste and genuine reverence that it stands out from the pack.

    Is Barault starting an official "503" line like Dupont does with the "Vieille Reserve"? The guitar sounds great although not perfectly "selmer" to my ears... it will probably get there with ageing!

    Yeah, some Selmers got as much as a 75 year head start. Years of gypsy abuse would probably help.

    Or get Tchavolo Schmitt or Stephane Wrembel to play it for five minutes!

    hey klaatu, remember the bob holo thread where i mentioned the french forum was super brutal ? haha

    well some folks are going at it on my video hahaha

    one of these days, i'll make a list of the difference between the french forums and the english ones.. one person is not happy that my chromatic passage was not perfect (django's wasn't e/ither) and another complained that our rendition is too perfect thus no soul hahahaha

    there's a HUUUUUGE difference in mentality and culture...
