Learn to improvise in the Gypsy Jazz violin style even if you have never improvised before. The style is closely associated with French jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli, who played with Gypsy jazz guitar player Django Reinhardt. Each lesson in the book covers specific key aspects of the Gypsy jazz violin style. The techniques are presented sequentially and the underlying music theory is introduced on a need to know basis. Getting Into Gypsy Jazz Violin includes charts of classic swing tunes such as Avalon, The Sheik of Araby & After You've Gone and includes a CD featuring authentic accompaniment tracks and model violin performances. Because the Gypsy jazz violin style maintains common elements of traditional classical violin techniques such as vibrato and shifting, the book is a perfect vehicle for the classical violinist to learn to improvise without having to change their general approach to the instrument. Any intermediate or advanced violinist can learn to improvise in the Gypsy jazz violin style. Perfectly suited to classically trained violinists because the Gypsy jazz violin style is closely related to traditional classical violin techniques. Includes charts of classic swing tunes such as Avalon, The Sheik of Araby & After You!ve Gone. The 21 lessons are carefully sequenced to introduce key components of the Gypsy jazz violin style. Includes a CD with sample solos and exercises in addition to authentic Gypsy jazz guitar accompaniment tracks.
