Swing Gitan is a modern “Classic” of Gypsy Swing. The french manouche players made this song famous in the „Gypsy Jazz Scene“ (a.o. Angelo Debarre + Sammy Daussat). „Swing Gitan“ is close to a “Minor Blues” character, that means we just use 5 chords, so this song is very interesting for all „rhythm guitar” players who just started to play the “La Pompe” rhythm. The structure of the melody is very clear, so this is also a lesson for „newcomers“ and people who play Gypsy Swing for the first time. The Solo is more for intermediate or advanced players, there are a lot of new ideas that can be used for own improvisations.
