I've seen a couple of videos on YouTube explaining the so-called "gypsy" picking system. Starting every new string on a downstroke, DUD patterns, the arched right hand position. But I haven't seen a video of someone breaking down Django's infamous video (the only real video we have of him with sync'd audio) of him playing J'attendrai Swing in 1939 with his band.
After watching it multiple times I have noticed that even Django breaks these so-called "rules."
I want to see if anyone was interested in me doing a comprehensive breakdown of his picking technique from that footage.
A part of me thinks it could clear up a lot of things and help us all understand his approach from a "right hand" perspective
I think it could be a cool challenge, and maybe help add to the pool of what we can all learn from his technical genius!
What do y'all think?
