If your tastes run to a modern guitar jazz fusion, you'll be aware of the incredible young guitarist from Palermo in Sicily.

Check out some of his newer videos, his right hand technique is unique ( and perhaps not particularly usable in gypsy jazz )

I was surprised to see him playing with a GJ style backing track on an old Django favourite:

    Just recently a friend gave me a heads up on him. He is scary good. Nice guy though.

    Good playing!

    This right hand style is not unique but it's certainly rare, Sandro Lorier for example plays with a similar technique- see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9k-Uany-5QE

    And I recognized the theme, it's directly from Bireli! -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xwmpuvj8dSw

    nicely spotted, Wim, lots of similarities to Bireli's solo, which I assume Matteo has been studying.

    He's a real player though, imho, much more than just a sound-alike :
