Django Reinhardt. Les Paul. Why not gove this a listen. You’ll be glad you did. Jazz. Gypsy Jazz. Ohhhh yeah!

Now I complain because my fourth finger is crooked and points inward. Meaning that I have trouble stretching up the fret board to hit notes……Django’s third and fourth fingers were paralysed and he still came up with some great stuff. So you’re telling me there’s a chance?

Minor Swing – Django Reinhardt, Stéphane Grappelli, (Quintet du Hot Club de France) – 1937

and just for fun….Django’s guitar shown by Les Paul during an interview at his New Jersey home (1985).
