I just wanted to say what a wonderful text unaccompanied django is... After buying virtually all the books on g-jazz it seems funny that the last thing I would find turns out to be the gem!
What an accomplishment! Anyone who opens the book can tell how much time and effort must have went into making this wonderful learning text. What a better way to learning the music of django other than from django himself?
All of Michael`s extreme attention to the fingerings/picking stokes/phrasing of django`s brings his music to the reading musician! Married with the g-picking book, I think unaccompanied django can show the sleuthing reader the way to excute the proper arpeggios, diminished scale runs, V-I cadences, and glimpses of django`s relentless sense of phrasing. The book is the jazz or classical musician`s aide to exploring the music of django reinhardt, I hope more people of all styles and levels of experience will give time to this wonderful text!
