It’s been a long cold Winter with only remote Jamulus for musical swingology interactions. A friend of mine turned me on to Sven Jungbeck, a youtube guitar teacher in Germany who is a great player and very understandable.
He a has a bunch of great videos, but two that stand out are:
These are some basics to gypsy jazz and really helpful to guitarists working to play tunes in the genre.
We played out! It’s been a while. Thanks to the friendly folks at Epicure for letting us set up on their outdoor rooftop garden and play a few sets. We’ve only been rehearsing with Jamulus remote software. It felt great to play in person with a live audience. It was a pretty casual and low key show and was streamed live. You can see video form the event on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/swingologydc/
We hope the downward virus trends continue, and we can play out more.
