This book/CD set is the first method ever for learning Gypsy Jazz Violin in the style of Stéphane Grappelli. Have you, too, often listened to Grappelli’s solos thinking “I wish I could do that, but it is way over my head?” Here is the answer. Simple theory, licks and stylistic lessons point you towards your first authentic Gypsy Jazz improvisations, which you can try out with the swinging guitar-bass playalong CD rhythm section. Then prepare to tackle six classic Stéphane Grappelli solos, annotated and analyzed for your understanding. To grasp the finesses of sound and timing, there are many sample licks and solos by Tim Kliphuis on the CD as well. It is assumed the student reads music and has a basic command of the instrument.
