Paul Pazzo Mehling continues his nuts and bolts exploration of Gypsy jazz and swing guitar techniques, putting all those scales, warm-ups and exercises you did on DVD 1 to practical use. His Hot Club of San Francisco band mate, Evan Price, helps out on rhythm guitar and shares his unique perspective in an informative conversation with Paul. Rhythm playing comes to the forefront as Pazzo reviews some archetypal progressions that every swing player needs to know. He shows a variety of chord shapes and inversions, navigating around the fingerboard and demonstrating a G Minor Blues, the Cycle of Fifths (Sweet Georgia Brown), variations on the 6-2-5 progression and the ubiquitous I Got Rhythm changes, among others. Once you ve learned the rhythm parts, Paul shows you how to solo over the progressions by playing single-string arpeggios, chromatic runs, scales, licks, harmonics and other very hot improvisational tools. His original tune, Don t Panic, a Gypsy-inspired tour de force, combines all the elements and will challenge any aspiring guitarist in building stamina, dexterity and fretboard knowledge.

great condensed teaching, no messing. .. not the fastest and smoothest player (like stochelo), but has something different,..great gypsy groove and melody, very unique with a spirit of django in there. really pleased with this,..i bought the other two from when pauln looked a little younger, and these were great too, but a little slower in what you learned..this one really is full on

This guy is an excellent teacher and I’d love to study with him personally …

I tried to learn this style from John Jorgenson’s books/cds and had no luck. I bought Mr Mehling’s dvd and this style became very clear and apparent to me. This guy is an excellent teacher and I’d love to study with him personally some day.

Okay but not well represented in description

Not exactly the guitar training I hoped for based on the description. The description isn’t exactly what the DVD is – there are no scales or progressions or basics as described. I had hoped for a step by step and this DVD skips many steps and really is a training more in strength and technique than in an overview. I was disappointed but I should have known better as the homespun dvds are often disappointing. More step by step needed and less an exercise in narcissism- how much the teachers already know – we watch them play but they don’t provide a good step by step.
