  • Hi GMC!

    Let's talk about Gipsy Jazz or Manouche guitar. The founder of this style is great Django Reinhardt. Reinhardt adapted gypsy folk melodies to the rhythms of American jazz, which reached widespread popularity in Europe in the 1930s. The study of this style may take some time and a lot of strength and conditioning practice!

    To get the right Manouche sound you need a string set at least 012 gauge. Put the 12s on the acoustic guitar and then you will be clear why I mentioned strength.
    I tried to imitate the sound with this TA model guitar.
