Here's the First Book:
UnHot! (really cold) Gypsy Licks
20 to 30 neat Gypsy licks played at slow or slow to moderate tempos, only
Really good material played and demonstrated at demo speeds only.
With SLOW accompaniment tracks.
Here's the second book:
"Crawling Through the Gypsy Standards Repertoire"
Ten to twenty really great Gypsy Jazz Standards at slow and slow to moderate tempos - great songs at slow and moderate tempos!
I once heard Joe Pass play "Sweet Georgia Brown" (live) at about 132 or maybe 140. But it was terrific, he really did swing and it sounded great - it had a nice lilt (Ala Grappelli) and everyone listening was blown away!
Tom - the old. slow, sloppy, picker - crawling to get better!
