Hank Plays Django
I’m proud and honored to have Hank B. Marvin share his love of gypsy jazz and Django Reinhardt in this special issue of Gypsy Jazz Guitar Secrets magazine. I’ve known Hank’s guitar playing since I was a kid and, like millions of others, have some of his uber cool tunes, such as F.B.I and Apache, engrained in my musical memory forever.
Hank's Gypsy Guitar Collection
"One of the highlights of my trip 'down under' was sitting down with Hank and taking a peek inside his extensive collection of both vintage and contemporary gypsy guitars. For me it was like being a kid in a candy store. Hearing the stories behind his favorite guitars and some insights into what Hank loves about gypsy guitars was a special treat. I think you’ll love this video we shot at his studio in Perth Australia. Welcome to gypsy jazz guitar club!"
"Pat Metheny Style Chromatic Fantasy"

This first one is an idea I got from Pat Metheny who is one of my favorite players and although not a gypsy jazz guitarist he has some really cool stuff you can apply to your playing.

Dominant Licks Part 1
Here’s a ready to go hip and bite size dominant lick to get under your fingers.
Tim's Quick Licks
This lick starts by using a tritone substitution arpeggio, where an ascending Eb7 arpeggio is played over the chord of A7 giving a pleasing dissonant quality. The lick then descends more conventionally via a triplet enclosure through an A7 arpeggio to land on the root of the I chord - D. Three 6/9 chords rising chromatically from C to D complete the lick.
How To Improve Your Improvisation 'Bouncing' through Minor Swing
Ole from Denmark asked me on the Secrets Youtube channel “How to improve your improvisation and not rely on scales?” and in this lesson I’ve got just the thing...
