Guitar Techniques - - DJANGO REINHARDT -

Six th chords and their as­so­ci­ated arpeg­gios make fre­quent ap­pear­ances in Rein­hardt ’s st yle - and gypsy jaz z in gen­eral. We begin this short ex­cerpt with a chro­mat­i­cally dec­o­rated C6 (C-E-GA), although we could also see this as an A mi­nor triad against a C root (A-C-E). In bars 5 and 6 we see a slick com­bi­na­tion of both D Half-di­min­ished (D-F-Ab-C) and D mi­nor 6/7 against G7 (D-F-A-B-C).
