So... anybody has a great jazz manouche version of a good modern song you'd like to share? Why isn't there a Manouche PostModern Jukebox?

Awesome! I love when people put themselves to the task of reconstructing how Django actually pulled off all those beautiful and sometimes acrobatic phrases and riffs with his condition. Great work! If you enjoyed, why not encourage this with a like? :) https://youtu.be/TAazV2SOW_4

Without Django Reinhardt, there would be no heavy metal as we know it. It may sound weird, or funny, but it's true. That's what we can take away from many many interviews of the Dark Lord of the Riff himself, the legendary Tony Iommi. In this recent one, to the Music Institute, Iommi talks about the gruesome factory accident with his right hand, and how Django's music inspired him to find a way to play his guitar after the tragic event.

A very cool video by the samuraiguitarist about guitarists who fought - and won - great physical battles, all for the love of the guitar. The part on Django is pretty accurate, except, as it is very common in his most re-tellings of his story, for the detail of the "celluloid flowers" that helped ignite the fire that injured him. That misunderstanding, initially brought up by Django's former friend and first biographer, Charles Delaunay, was later corrected by a more modern biographer, Michel Dregni, who actually sought out more information about Bella Maier's family. Delaunay's version goes something along the lines of: Django's wife - he doesn't refer to her by name - had spent the whole day "preparing celluloid flowers" to sell on the cemetery the next day. Django came back from a gig, opened the caravan's door, she woke up and accidentally hit a candle. Delaunay concluded then that the fire probably took place in the first hours of November 2nd, 1928 - the day when the christians celebrate their dead. Dregni's account, however, is backed up by the admission registration of Django as a patient to Hôpital Lariboisière on October 26th that same year. In Dregni's words, though she chose to live with him at La Zone, a sort of Parisian ghetto, Bella had financial support from her relatively wealthy family, so there was no need for her to sell anything on the cemetery. The flowers were real flowers, and what Bella prepared were the big bouquets of flowers wrapped in celluloid for the burial of a gypsy boy from their community. Dregni also added one important detail: possibly on that same night, Django had received an invitation to play with a British bandleader called Jack Hylton. It would be his first break as a jazz guitarist. https://youtu.be/tRLNri8wyfs

Overcoming limitations: Django's guitar playing style * By Marcio Beck * When Django Reinhardt was 18 years old, on October 26th, 1928, his caravan was destroyed by an accidental fire. As a result, his right leg and left hand were severely injured. His ring and little finger were so terribly burnt they were almost paralyzed, the charred skin of his hand permanently pulling them back. He had to spend months having to re-learn how to play the guitar entirely to overcome his new physical limitations. The world had already known other guitar players affected by physical disabilities. There were famous blind players, like Blind Lemon Jefferson, but Django was likely the first guitar player to rise to prominence despite a physical disability affecting his hands. In this re-thinking of his playing technique, he adopted a more "vertical" approach to the fretboard to allow him do achieve intervals that would be easy for somebody playing with 4 digits, combined with extensive use of glissando, his fingers almost parallel to the neck of the guitar. As a result of all of these adaptations, he developed a singular style that became the basis for what is today known as Jazz Manouche. Guitarist Christophe Lartilleux devoted his time to master the actual 2-digit soloing used by Django, and his videos are a precious resource to those who would want to better understand the phenomenon. https://youtu.be/dXfoPouLYAk

What is your favorite Django tune?
Django Reinhardt Apr 27, 2018
To all the people who have been sending messages, thank your for your interest but please read the updated description. This page is ONLY an *HOMAGE* to the great late guitarist, made by a huge fan who thought it would be a clever running joke to try to emulate what would happen if Django himself had a facebook profile and could share things about him and his musician friends. However, looks like there are people actually incapable of understanding that you can't offer a gig to someone who - sadly - left this existence 55 years ago. The page will continue, but operating under a different logic from now on, more "third person". Hope you keep enjoying.

De toutes les chansons que j'ai enregistrée, c'est mon préféré. je pense que je l'ai enregistré plus de dix fois. Oui, c'est vrai que la première fois que je l'ai joué pour un public, ils ne voulaient pas s'arrêter. Of all the songs that i have recorded, this is my favorite. I think i recorded it over ten times. Yes, it is true that the first time i played it for an audience, they did not want me to stop. https://youtu.be/Fq-t9TVbthc
