Customer comments:

Hi Dix;

I've just received your two books on Gypsy Jazz. they are not only "GREAT" but FABULOUS"!

You did an excellent job on presenting the material in both Standard Notation, TAB and Chord Charts. I also found your suggested fingering extremely helpful. Also your example on playing in different octaves, which helps the student to learn the guitar finger board was also helpful.

I actually didn't expect so much information on this type musical genre. Your book is more than a Song Book. It's a actually a complete Intro course on Gypsy Jazz! Bravo Dix!

In closing, I hope that you will publish Volume # 3 in the near future.

Best regards,
J. A., Chicago, IL

Dear Dix,

First time, ever, writing a letter like this. But, felt compelled to... I''m 61 years old and started playing guitar about 3 1/2 years ago ... The music that makes me happy to be alive is Gypsy Swing. I have bought DVDs by ***, ***, and about three others. Also books on Django and books on arpeggios etc., etc., etc.. All of this was so over my head, so overwhelming, so frustrating. Most of the technique and scales and arpeggios were disjointed and had really no similarity to the music I was listening to. Not their fault, just over my level ...

Three weeks ago I came across your book/CD "Gypsy Swing and Hot Club Rhythm for Guitar." ... I started with "Avaoln" — right away I liked the format with the chord diagrams, the melody, and the finger number placements [tablature] for the melody. Now, what's most amazing is that I spent hours watching the *** tapes and still (for some strange reason) could not get the "le Pompe" sound. (Granted I blame myself or my level of understanding). Yet immediately I picked it up from you, Jason, and Steve... After playing "Avalon" and "The Sheik" I immediately ordered the second book/CD. I've spent 3 weeks so far with the 1st book and plan to spend a lot more tiime with it before I move on. I love the use of the 7th and 6th chords. "Swingin' Like '42" is just what I'm talking about. The melody is great. I can play it medium slow but it still sounds great. That's the Django sound.
