The Ultimate Gypsy Run

The Ultimate Gypsy Run

Juicy secrets of the dim7, harmonic minor and mixob9b13

Ever wondered how to create long phrases over the Dom7 chord?

This course is the answer!

The core of this course is a complete system for creating a long and fast run, based on an idea transcribed from Django Reinhardt's solos.

You will learn the elements of this system - the harmonic minor and the mixob9b13 scales and the dim7 arpeggio. You’ll get tips on how to use them in your accompaniment and solo playing, plus examples from Django’s playing. Then, you will learn this special system that will improve your improvisation skills and technique dramatically and you'll see how I implement it over 4 famous songs – Bossa Dorado, All of Me, Minor Swing and Nuages.

Important - This course contains parts of lesson 22 from my previous site. It is also contains lots of new material!
If you already bought the old lesson contact me and you will be credited with the amount you paid.

After learning this course:

* You will know the theory behind the harmonic minor and the mixob9b13 scales.

* You will know how to play the harmonic minor and the mixob9b13 scales in various positions.

* You will know how to play the mixob9b13 scale in your improvisation over your entire fingerboard using a special lick.

* You will know how to combine the mixob9b13 scale with the dim7 arpeggio.

* You will know how Django used the mixob9b13 scale in the songs Les Yeux Noir and Rhythm Futur.

* You will get examples of the use of this idea in 4 songs:

  • Bossa Dorado
  • All of Me
  • Minor Swing
  • Nuages

I have been playing and listening to Django's music for the past 30 years. I know most of the songs and can solo over the changes but I always sounded like a bebop player playing gypsy swing. In other words, I could play the tunes, but never wit...

Not just an 'ultimate' run, there a whole lot more and it's fantastic.

This is one of the most useful courses I've seen. Really well explained, with heaps of information given in easy to understand bites. It's not just a long complex run, (which would be difficult and perhaps even a bit boring). It's actually an expl...
