Love Django, but didn't know only his middle and index fingers were useable! I'd say he has better chops than a good amount of guys with all four!
Django is one of my influences, although I play the blues. What a great p;ayer and inovator
Excellent ways of playing guitar. Gone Mad with the style of playing
Django Reinhardt has astounded and thrilled numerous generations of guitar players and jazz lovers with his amazing command of the guitar. January 24th, 1910 at Liberchies Belgium, Django was born into the open air, rambling lifestyle of his gypsy parents. At the age of eight, his mother's tribe settled near the belt of fortifications that surrounded the old Paris, near the Choisy gate.
Coolest Jazz Guitar I ever heard
Interesting article providing some background on the Gypsy Jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. Good brief summarization of his life, discography, and reading suggestions. I honestly have not checked out Django enough, so this site is getting me inspired. I'd like to read something a little more in-depth, but this is a great start!

During this time he was given a guitar, and with great determination Django created a whole new fingering system built around the two fingers on his left hand that had full mobility.
Great site for us Django fans, I love his later stuff, post fire. Adversity, pain and suffering mixed with soul bending passion for music created something wonderful.
Good @ work music, if you talk your co-workers into it.
