My favorite part of this book is the thirty 4-measure examples of the V7 - I progression. In standard notation and in tab, these examples are fresh, musical, and good for capturing the Gypsy Jazz sound. Get these thirty passages under your fingers, and you'll have plenty to play and experiment with.
But there is more to this book than that. There are exercises stressing the importance of pick-hand technique; there are arpeggios, and arpeggio extension; there are extensive exercise for adding upper and lower approach notes to arpeggios. There are also sections covering improvisation, basic shapes, chord-voicings, accomapaniment, the harmonic and melodic minor, and more.
All of this is explained in detail in lucid text written in Fench, English, and German.(I can only attest to the lucidity of the English portion.)
I haven't yet had the time to study through the whole book. I estimate that will take about a year - if I really work at it. It will be time well spent.
The book's only shortcoming is that it includes only one complete 32-bar solo. I only hope that the writer, Stephane Wrembel, will soon produce a book/CD of solos.
Finally, after saying that I feel I have not done justice to this fine book/CD, I will say that if there is only one Gypsy Jazz book to own and to work with, this is it.
I've looked at a lot, and own a lot of these books and this is the only method I've stuck with. What's great is it really is a method. It starts with learning the picking technique and then give you the typically used jazz manouche chords, how and when to use them.
The main part of the book teaches you how to solo. This is without a doubt the best part of the book due to the way Stephane explains how to learn soloing using basic shapes.
This soloing part of the method leads you gently through learning simple shapes that are easy to learn, then adds additional tones in subsequent chapters. So you learn first the triad shapes, there are lots of musical exercises to get this down. Then he later add the altered tones, so it's not too much information to learn at a time.
As much as I love this method there are a few small things I'd like to have seen differently. The accompaniment section could have done with being a little longer.
Another reviewer here mentioned that he'd like to have seen backing tracks. This would have been nice, yes, but uneccessary as Stephane has a whole bunch of free backing tracks available on his website, just google his name.
If you're looking for a book of Django solos in tab, or for a book with the chord progressions of the standards, this isn't for you. Look rather at one of Robin Nolan's excellent books for the chords and melodies of the standards.
But If you want to have a glimpse at how the gypsies learn how to pla, and learn how to improvise. This is THE book to buy.
In any case there is no 'one' book for anything. I'd recommend buying this one for learning to solo and to improvise (from beginners upwards) without needing to learn any theory - just shapes. Then get Robin Nolan's books to learn the standards.
