DC Gypsy Jazz Jam (Takoma Park)

  • to
  • Takoma Park VFW Post 350

    6420 Orchard Ave. (near New Hampshire & Eastern aves.) Takoma Park, MD, Takoma Park, MD (map)

    38.977890 -77.007477

  • Under the files section of the group there are some fake book sheets, guitar chords and arpeggios if you would like something to study.  

    Some people felt it would be a benefit if we ad a core list of songs which we could concentrate on.  

    We selected this list:

    All of Me (C) 

    Bossa Dorado

    Dark Eyes


    Douce Ambiance

    I Can't Give You Anything But Love (G)

    Lady Be Good (G)

    Limehouse Blues(G)

    Manoir De Mes Reves (Django's Castle)

    Minor Swing

    Swing 39

    Swing 42

    Swing Gitan 

    We will try to stick to songs from that list for the first hour or so.  This will allow beginners to have something to concentrate on that is shorter than the bigger Django Fakebook 2008.  I usually bring a couple of extra copies of the Django Fakebook for new people and guests to use.

    The VFW in Takoma Park serves drinks and snacks but no real meals.  Eat before you come.  The VFW would like you to spend money while you are here to help keep their lights on and taxes paid. Hope to see you there.
