About the Camp:
We speak about the importance of good warm up’s and Improvisation. Frank, Olli and Vinny will go over and demonstrate very important fingerboard studies which connect your ears to fingers while connecting them to songs. Jamming is an important part of Frank’s workshops so be prepared to play, play, play. Each student is provided in advance with 20 lead sheets so we are all prepared to play together.

Rhythm Guitar:

Frank, Olli and Vinny will teach about Rhythm Guitar through jamming. He will go over two styles of rhythm, Gypsy Django style and the swing Freddie Green style of rhythm playing. These two styles were influenced by each other and very similar.

Jam Session:

Each Participant will receive 15 lead sheets in advance!

There is no better teacher than jamming songs with each other. This is where you will possibly learn the most is by sitting and jamming with the Masters and fellow students. This environment is an important part of Gypsy Jazz. There will be no caravan but the spirit of sitting around the camp fire jamming will be.

Gypsy Django secrets and riffs:

Olli will discuss riffs and expressions that gave Django his uniqueness. Vibrato, tremolo and his unique horizontal approach. They will explain and demonstrate Django’s secrets and riffs in this workshop.
