    I guess to me, the big joy in this music is the fact it seems a very natural bridge between jazz and folk music, and being acoustic "campfire" music is a big part of that for me.

  • I feel just as many people in that thread here : electric guitar in gypsy jazz doesn't thrill me because it lack the dynamism. One of the main thing that attracts me in gypsy jazz is the percussive sound (nearly as flamenco guitar) that Django, Tchavolo etc can reach on acoustic Selmacs.. No electric can recreate this pure joy of sound !!

    Amen ..though with a foot pedal electric guitar can at least have easy dynamic changes

    The Magic really starts to happen when you can play it with your eyes closed
