"Swing 42" is a gypsy jazz standards written by Django Reinhardt and it was first released in 1941 by Django and the Hot Clud De France.

Gypsy jazz musicians often play this brilliant tune in their repertoire.

In my "Swing 42" gypsy jazz lesson you will learn how to improvise over the changes and learn the main theme note by note as well as the improvisation.

It is full of useful licks that you can use in your jazz vocabulary.

I have provided 7 pages with full tabs where I have marked the right chords (with the exact position and fingering that I have used to play the rhythm guitar) and the picking patterns for the solo (upstrokes and downstrokes) of EVERY NOTE so you can get the maximum insight of how it is played.

The 2 backing tracks included in this lesson are in different tempo - 230bpm and a version which is 25% slower. Depending on your skill level you can choose which tempo is right for you.

There are 13 slow and fast videos showing each section separatelly.

  • 1 video for the intro
  • 4 videos for the main theme
  • 7 videos for the improvisation
  • 1 more video for the last A part of the main theme at the end

(I play the HEAD the same as the begining, so that's why I havent included the AAB parts of the main theme)

The 32 bar form of the composition is A-A-B-A.
