first of all congratulations for everything that you wrote about this style of playing.
Your books and approach are the best that I have ever seen.
I am 50 years old and I had in my hands hundreds different guitar books but never
I was so impressed as I had opportunity to go through your books.
Your style,knowledge and love for this style is amazing and especially way that you share your knowledge.Great job and I am glad to order your new book Gypsy Rhythm.
I would like to ask you few question about playing some idiomatic gypsy voicings.
You sugested fingering in 6/9 forms 221134 like D6/9 with 5th in the bass using
3rd and 4th finger on B and top E string.In G6/9 form your fingering is T22133
Is it way that gypsies are playing this chord or some of them are also fingering top two strings with their 3rd and 4th finger.
Also i am wondering how Django fingered those chords because his 3rd and 4th finer couldn't move separately,especially in dom7/9 forms like G7/9 with your fingering T22143
I agree with you that most important is right hand technique,keeping La pompe but
I am just wonering.
Do you have any exercise for "thumb position" playing that you can suggest to me.
Glad to hear from you
All the best
