No offense to the fine authors here, I have all of your books and study them regularly. But finally I got one that suites my needs perfectly.
The winner is:
Robin Nolan's Gypsy Jazz Licks Vol 1.
This book has great rythms and gypsy style progressions to learn - they are based on popular songs. But, there's more - the licks are just great! They are based on arpeggios Django style, and so are easily transferable to other songs. As a bonus you are learning arpeggios!!
The licks are presented in increasing order of difficulty first at a slow cadence and a 'at speed' cadence.
It is well explained and easily learned.
I give it an A.
I would give it an A++ but for the funky tab notation he uses. It's odd, but I got used to it quickly.
If he used standard tab it would indeed be perfect.
This book will increase my playing tremendously,
Let's have more like it.
