    @bbwood_98 Thank you, the overall pronounciation was not that bad maybe. My "main fault" was the tongued "r" instead of a palatal "r", I think. This is at least what I hear with native Yiddish speakers and singers (same with Romanes).

    Here's a video and recording of Coquette I did using the licks and techniques I got from Denis Chang's "Gypsy Jazz for Beginners" course.

    5 months in to rest stroke picking. Dont be harsh please..hahaha. Every fiber in my body concentrates, and takes away from the left hand, just to STAY IN THE DJANGO mode.

    First take improv over minor swing. I havent really ever improvised over this specific song. Luckily its a fairly easy progress easy to remember.

    Thank you very much @Buco @scot !

    I am happy to share a few of our own compositions! Our style is a crude mix of all kinds of influences and I guess "Gypsy Jazzisms" definitely can be heard here and there.

    Here is the title track of our latest album (corona live performance without audience):

    More on the bluesy side:

    Some rock'n'roll:

    And finally some urm... surf reggae calypso?

    I've been a big Django and gypsy jazz fan for longer than i've been playing guitar (half of my life by now), but have only ever played flatpicking or fingerstyle the entire time as guitar player.

    We used to play Django tunes with the band, but at the time I was trying to teach it myself I had a very slow village internet connection so I couldn't really get good information from there and personally I didn't know anyone who could show me anything related or even knew the music and I was not aware that something like rest stroke technique even exists haha.

    But since about 2 years I try to get the authentic Gypsy Jazz technique going. I can hardly listen to our old recordings where we try to play Gypsy Jazz with flatpicking and pentantonic solos today due to sheer embarrassment haha.

    Here is a cringeworthy flatpicked version of Valse de Wasso (complete with misspelled title on Spotify haha) from our debut album (i think besides the solo guitar it's quite nice though):

    An autumn greeting to all of you forum members, to an internet community that is as knowledgeable as friendly.

    Autumn song from Austria: summer is over, leaves are falling from the trees. Sun is setting, snow winds are rising.

    Edit: new Euphonium recording - the old one was too sloppy.

    Very nice harmonies and nice melody too.
