Watch the Gypsy Jazz Journeys: Sonora Spring online guitar lesson by John Jorgenson from Gypsy Jazz Journeys: Sonora Spring

Hi, I'm John Jorgenson, and welcome to Gypsy Jazz Journeys: Sonora Spring. Over my many years as a recording and performing artists, in many genre, I've learned the most about playing guitar from gypsy jazz.

In this edition of Gypsy Jazz Journeys, I'll show you examples of the concepts and techniques that I've learned and been able to apply to my own music.

We'll deconstruct my composition, Sonora Spring, to demonstrate these concepts and techniques within a musical context. I'll break down the whole song for you, note-by-note, and I include both slow and at tempo playalongs for each of the sections. Everything is tabbed and notated for you, plus you'll get all of the rhythm tracks to work with on your own. So, grab your guitar and let's get started!
