Hi Friends! I'm super excited to share with you the first in a new series of videos I'm creating - Let's Jam! Online interactive gypsy jazz jam simulator! This week's song, Coquette.

Basically, it's a real Jam in your own home. instead of just a playalong, you jam with the video, playing rhythm while Mick and I solo, and lead during several places where we play only rhythm. Give it a try and tell me what you think (and/or request a song for next weeks video)



And, here's ANOTHER one, this time it's Swing Gitane

    Thanks man!

    By the way friends, I found that when I played along with the video, I found it fun and easy to solo, but playing rhythm was a bit challenging because I couldn't hear the rhythm guitar over my own. anybody find that the case?

    I'm thinking the next video I will try to have an extra person there playing rhythm the whole time. Maybe even have my basist there as well.

    i haven't tried this yet, but i know that i would run into that same issue when playing rhythm. this can be resolved a bit more easily by listening through headphones or playing much quieter! :)

    This is a great idea, Anthony! How about inserting arpeggio/scale sub titles as reminders for budding soloists during the viewer chorus chord changes?

    Great minds think alike, Clement Reboul released an instruction video of Coquette recently: http://www.apprendre-le-jazz-manouche.com/etude-de-grille-5-coquette/

    Very nice!!! How about adding a bass in future jams? Keep 'em going!!!
    I'm always interested in jamming with experienced jazz and gypsy jazz players in the San Francisco - San Jose area. Drop me a line. Bass players welcome!

    That's the plan.

    Bass is good. Rhythm in Gitane ...hmmmm...you have basic pompe and second rhythm pattern driving the bus.....too much going on IMHO.....sometimes it works with the solo sometimes I feel it is competing with he solo...not having a conversation.

    Having said that it does simulate what often happens in real jams
    The Magic really starts to happen when you can play it with your eyes closed
