    Try this-

    truefire.com/jazz-guitar-lessons/50-gypsy-jazz-licks/

    Looks like the 20% discount has expired.

    If you create a new account with them they will give you a 25% discount code for your first order as well as you'll get $10 worth of this virtual cash that you can apply partially to the same order. After all that it came down to $10.60 for me.

    They also have a lesson called Gypsy Jazz Duets with Frank Vignola and Andreas Oberg. Awesome lessons especially for the price. They didn't have that one up last time I was there, now I have another one to buy at some point.

    -1 on the on those Frank Vignola / Andreas Oberg videos. I got them some years ago, and found them to be very poor. They seemed thrown together with little or no planning, and the result was a pretty incoherent and useless lesson in my opinion. IIRC it was also the first time frank and andreas had every played together, and it really showed - there was a huge disconnect in style (and level) between those guys!

    I'm late to this thread but I wanted to say three things:

    1) Wim is right that the Andreas Oberg / Frank Vignola clips are really really bad. They have no pedagogy and are just awkwardly filling time.

    2) The Reinier Voet videos are very good and their free 30 day trial is more than enough time to work with them.

    3) That site only lets you use that free money system of theirs toward 25% of the cost of anything you want to download, so disregard the comments above who say they got $10 off a $20 product. That might used to work but it doesn't anymore.

    I'm also late to this party - but I've been a Truefire user in the past so thought I'd have a look at this. There was a 20% discount available and with a another few dollars discount from my "Truefire cash" it came out at £7.01 sterling, which hopefully is a bargain. Just downloading it now.

    I've been flirting with gypsy jazz on and off for a few years but never got beyond Gypsy Picking (never even quite got the whole of the Minor Blues solo nailed...maybe this time!) and a very poor La Pompe so figure it's time to give it another go.

    Kind regards

    True true. He's a really good teacher and this stuff is very legit. I'm not a huge fan of the software package because basically I just want to put the vid on the screen and print the PDF and get down to it. That works best for me. But the PDFs and videos are in separate folders and well marked so it's not an impediment by any means. And if you like the learning software - so much the better. But either way, he did a darned good job on this.

    You get one chance to enjoy this day, but if you're doing it right, that's enough.

    IMO "very worth getting"

    I'll second that - I'm slowly working through this and it's clear, useful and fun. I'm really enjoying and appreciating being able to see and hear the music being played, and am finding it easier to remember than learning from books.
