Gypsy Swing & Hot Club Rhythm II for Mandolin

Pleasant Hill, Calif. — Dix Bruce's Musix Publications has released Gypsy Swing & Hot Club Rhythm II for Mandolin, a book and CD combination set follow-up to Volume I of the same title published in 2007.

The collection includes 12 swing standards recorded by Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli and the Quintette of the Hot Club of France.

Play along with a great Gypsy Swing Rhythm Section and learn chords, comping, and melodies, then let the band back you up as you practice chords and soloing. You play all the leads while the band backs you up. Beginners can practice basic skills while more advanced players can hone their improvisation chops, each at their own individual learning pace.

Split track mixing on the recording allows the student to hear just the melody (while reading along in the book) or just the rhythm section, or both for maximum flexibility and specific study.

Includes standard notation, tablature, chord diagrams, lyrics, playing tips, and more. Each song is presented on the CD at slow and regular speed.
