Lesson: Sweet

Gypsy Classic by Victor Young

This time we prepared “Sweet Sue, Just You”, because it’s a typical Gypsy Swing Standard. Django Reinhardt and Oscar Alemán played this tune back in the 30s.

If you want to hear a version without the Selmer Style Guitar sound, we would recommend the Versions by Errol Garner and Miles Davis.

In 1999 Woody Allen took the Song for his Movie “Sweet and Lowdown” with Sean Penn (as Emmet Ray).

Joscho explains in our lesson the Rhythm-Guitar and the Theme. We also prepared a Improvisation/solo with Jazz Manouche ornaments (trills, vibrato a.o.) and typical Django Style Licks.
