This 60-page book and CD includes:
  • Thirty of the most common phrases and arpeggios used by Django Reinhardt, Biréli Lagrčne, Jimmy Rosenberg, Stochelo Rosenberg, and other contemporary Gypsy jazz virtuosos
  • Four complete Gypsy jazz style solos of various skill levels composed by Andreas Öberg
  • Transcriptions that are both standard notation and tablature (guitar chord diagrams included)
  • Notation of fingerings, picking and chord voicings used by professional Gypsy jazz guitarists
  • An audio CD with all examples played by Andreas Öberg at slow and fast tempos
The book is organized into two sections:
  • Part I, "Gypsy Jazz Patterns," contains thirty of the most commonly used Gypsy jazz phrases and arpeggios.
  • Part II, "Solos," contains four authentic Gypsy jazz style solos composed by Andreas Öberg.

The accompanying CD has audio examples of the thirty phrases, patterns, arpeggios and full length solos.

This book is designed to teach thirty essential Gypsy jazz style patterns and arpeggios to guitarists of any skill level. The examples within will enable beginning students to quickly develop an authentic Gypsy jazz guitar technique. More advanced students will benefit from the notation of the highly efficient fingerings and picking used by most professional Gypsy jazz guitarists. To put these techniques into context, four complete Gypsy jazz style solos of varying skill levels are included. The accompanying play-along audio CD will allow you to practice these techniques at slow and fast tempos. Those studying Gypsy Picking will find Gypsy Fire an excellent way to further develop their rest-stroke picking technique.

One of the unique features of this book is the meticulous attention given to right-hand pick strokes and left-hand fingerings. The picking patterns and fingerings notated in this book are based on research among Gypsy musicians and the study of video footage of Django Reinhardt. Unlike many other Gypsy jazz guitar instructional books, this book does not contain fingering and picking suggestions that are unidiomatic to the Gypsy jazz genre, or worst, merely afterthoughts full of errors. To spare you this frustration, the examples in this book demonstrate proven ways of executing Gypsy musical phrases.

Gypsy Fire by Andeas Oberg

Pros: great fun .. will make your playing really sparkle

Cons: not where i would start! ..even the EASY solo takes some doing,but you will be doing it right

the most fun gypsy learning book/cd package i've personally come across . it's taken me about a year (been playing gypsy about 7 yrs) to get the basic and intermediate songs down, .. i do however teach electric (rock etc) so the styles fight against each other.(sigh!!) i started with robin nolan's collection, and learning django pieces by tab/ear, whatever,.. then a breakthrough! michael horowitz's gypsy picking book..THAT'S why my notes didn't sound right !! michael very thoughtfully explains the way to attack each note with correct picking ,.. then stephane wrembel's 'getting into gypsy jazz' book really good for learning short phrases,and quite cool,(and WHAT a player!!) but THIS book ..absolutely brilliant it takes small sections(not dissimilar to horowitz's) that you learn in the front of the book, and tranfers them into really cool solo's in the back of the book. i have LOADS of gypsy books /cd's dvd's , and they all offer something , but the 3 books i keep coming back to are these that i've mentioned, but by far the most fun is this one GYPSY FIRE(which also has correct picking instructions) . i'm just starting the final solo 'shine' i'm guessing 6 months and i'll have it nailed .. so a year and a half's worth of fun (and grim determination lol! ..it's NOT easy!) for a few dollars it's a no brainer top stuff! and thank you djangobooks for stocking it! ;-) ian
