Andreas Öberg - Gypsy Fire 1 & 2
In Gypsy Fire, the most recent Djangobooks publication, Andreas Öberg in collaboration with Michael Horowitz have produced a terrific new resource for aspiring Gypsy Jazz guitarists. Gypsy Fire is a collection of melodic patterns and arpeggios that are typical of both contemporary GJ players and those who inspired them.
In two clinics, Andreas Öberg will go over selections from this material as well as introducing new material that was not included in the book. Although the general thrust of workshops will be the same - a focus on idiomatic patterns and arpeggios and their application to standard GJ repertoire - in Gypsy Fire 1, Andreas will approach the material in such a way that newcomers to the style will get a good introduction. In Gypsy Fire 2 he will assume that participants have been working with this type of material for some time and that folks are looking to take their playing to the next level. In Gypsy Fire 2, Andreas will also speak more about tools and devices for GJ improvisation.
