Django Reinhardt was one of the biggest influences on the great guitarists of the 20th century. Les Paul, Jeff Beck, and Jerry Garcia (to name a few) were all musicians influenced by Django’s playing. In this workshop, Connor breaks down the elements of Reinhardt’s musical style. Together we will understand and appreciate the inventiveness of Reinhardt and learn how to incorporate his ideas into our own music making, regardless of genre or instrument.
