The next tune that we prepared for our GypsyGuitarAcademy is Mr. Sandman by Pat Ballard. You can hear my first version of this song on my debut album “Swinging Strings“. Since that time i performed the song often in concert. A big succes was my Django Style version in Nashville, because normally you will hear the Chet Atkins inspired fingerstyle version. I am also inspired by Chet´s version and try to play the melody with the typical “Chet Chords” but of course i remember also the great Django Reinhardt. The best of both worlds…
The lesson includes: rhythmguitar, play with joscho-, chord & rhythm-, theme-, intro/outro-, theme- & solo video. So, much stuff to check.
