Here it is.
Sorry that’s me again !!
You sir are a genius!!!! Your dynamics are fantastic, how did you develop such a subtle touch with your slap hand? Again, fantastic & thanks for the video! :woohoo:
Oooh ! thank you very much.
Perhaps that’s because I haven’t followed the “classical rockabilly stream” ! or because I grew up between Balkan & America, in the wine-land (and wine-town : Bordeaux) ! More seriously : i love the simple way Louis Vola (and the second Django’s bassist) and Slam Stewart played.You have to hear “Swing Dynamyc” from Django.For slap technic : I try everything I got in my brain.
Great stuff my friend!
Next time something with violin, clarinet, or second guitar and no drums;)
Louis Vola is one of my favorites too. Btw I thought that he was founding member of the HCDF and the first Django’s bassist, not the second. Are you sure that someone else played before Vola?
Thank you very much Djordje,
We are working with a clarinetist these days.Hey !that’s again my poor english ! I meant I like also the “second” Django’s bassist named Emmanuel Soudieux that you can hear on ”
Swing dynamique “.Louis Vola was surely the first !(we say HCF ;)) but Django played also with Roger Grasset, Emmanuel Soudieux or Tony Rovira.
You can find “Swing dynamique” on musicme for instance.
Very cool video. Some years back i got to see Mark O’ Connor’s Hot Swing Trio live with John Burr on bass. truly phenomenal. this is the only video I could find of them though 🙁
Nicholas, thank you SO Much for introducing me to Django reinhardt!
it’s opened up a WHOLE new wave of challenges for me and my bass now!
the song writing is so much more sophisticated! than the traditional rockabilly predictable bass lines!
i was starting to get bored of that stuff and i needed something new!
since i started watching your vids on youtube i’ve been getting better very fast! and now this!
who would’ve thought a punk rocker could fall in love with swing music eh!
I’m glad I’m giving you new ideas and getting you better.Let’s listen “you rascal you” from Django.I was a punk rocker too ! and turned to swing and jazz but still playing rockabilly and blues.
What about “New-Orleans” jazz ?
SOUNDS PERFECT THIS BASS, WICH STRINGS ARE THIS?
Thanks, they are “Cordes Lambert” strings, a french trade I’m working with for six years.And I’m very proud my name will be the name of this strings when they sell them on march.I gonna post something about in next few weeks.
kind of nylon-whackers strings.Great substitute to gut.
You can find all explanations on their page : [url=http://www.myspace.com/cordeslambert][/url]
Feel free to ask me about in the “Cordes Lambert” topic at AOSB.
Thanx Nico. I’m gonna check the website out.
When you say a “great subtitue” to gut I’m sceptical.
But as they say…only idiots don’t change their mind !!! hahaha
