I'LL SEA yOu iN my DReAms!!!!! (DJANGO REINHARDT)
I've been learning how to play this song :)
I've got some of the patterns and phrases down...Django's two fingered licks are a bit complex to learn but I get a thrill from engaging in the complexities of life.
Django Reinhardt had all four fingers. BUT his left-hand's ring and pinky fingers were disabled. They were burnt badly in a fire that occurred in his traveling trailer. Despite the negative, Django aspired to become a master jazz guitarist. He practiced 16 hours a day!!! Very ambitious indeed...
oOKk i'm gonna go play guitar now senores y senoras!
Tell me what you think of the song!!
