post shit about the greatest guitar player in history.

does anyone know if the Segovia/Django story is true? the legend being that Segovia saw him play and demanded to see the sheet music and Django just laughed it off because he had just improvised it all. sounds like a tall tale to me, but funny to imagine.

He's amazing. I'm barely familiar with the 6-disc set of his I have, but it's incredible.

it's true, herr pavan
actually segovia was too proud to ask him in person, he sent someone to ask him for sheet music afterwards, and django being an illiterate musician (and citizen) of course had nothing of the kind

post shit
i'm tempted to post a picture of feces... but this being a django thread, it wouldn't be on topic. instead i'll post some of my favorite django stuff...




this one's actually called "clouds" and is different from "nuages" (the guy who posted the clip must be tone deaf if he thinks it's just another version of "nuages")

What should I get first for an album, or whatever you would call a collection of songs by him?

Interesting timing of the bump. Just been listening to In Solitaire for the first time. Brilliant.
