More Django!

A clip from the film 'La Route Du Bonheur' featuring the great "Gypsy Jazz" guitarist Django Reinhardt in 1952. The boy on his left is said to be his son. Not as nice as this, but done on an electric guitar this time.

And a montage of Django snap-shots to his famous "Minor Swing". Listen, aspiring young guitar players, and despair.

Yeah. Big influence on Chett Atkins.
