Favoriting Hinky Dinky Time with Uncle Michael: Playlist from December 9, 2022 Favoriting

Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Favoriting

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Suspect Django having to modify his technique to match the fingers he had left helped pioneer the whole situation for Gittar broadly from being mostly for Chords to also Leads ~ Solos. Amplification of course was also critical...

In the Les Paul documentary near the end of his life, he's doing one of his Iridium gigs and making forward, flirty, patronizing remarks about the woman playing stand-up bass and her physical appearance. A cringe at any time, but I saw it shortly after MeToo peaked, for extra "oy" reception as I watched, and with firm though presumptuous expectation that he likely never would've "gotten it."

An interesting suggestion. I think Django clearly had a broad & significant influence on many ...but possibly outside of Jazz in a way ? Duke Ellington @ the time dubbed him the first Foreigner to contribute something really original to the U.S. Jazz form ...Gittar aside ! & of course 'Gypsy Jazz' is a whole subgenre of its own. Also notable that Django & Grappelli matched each other in many respects...

...some titans seem more apparently sui generis - they come out of nowhere & have such a distinctive & singular voice. Perhaps partly it's that Django was Transitional - after him Gittar playing Lead Lines was much more taken for granted ? & then Amplification - which he only dipped a toe into - yet dip he did... Perhaps comparable to JeffBeck being a bit under credited for what he'd done *before* Hendrix arrived in London & swept the memory away ...well anyhow...

true dat, about Jeff Beck...he's not from this planet.

...&/or also that Django *did* have a particular technique to really work around having only two fretting fingers after the fire - which meant much fewer chords &tc. ...others just do other. Unique melodically / 'lyrically' - &tc. ...

Fingerpickin' is, of course, very different from what folkies call fingerpicking-it refers to Wes using his right hand thumb to hit the strings instead of a pick.

Again if I remember correctly, Django didn't completely lose use of his fingers in the fire-they fused, were stiffly straight, and he could use it for Baring chords or sort of like a capo. But he did have to create his own guitar style.

I think that's right. Django often did Octaves for instance - which would become Wes's trademark.

Martino is famous for his guitar playing, and also for the fact that like Django, he had to overcome incredible adversity. He had an avm (arterio-venous malformation) in his brain that burst, requiring him to have a good chunk of grey matter removed. He forgot almost everything after the surgery, including guitar playing. He then retaught himself jazz guitar,, and performed and recorded.
