Gypsy Jazz Guitar Lesson - Dark Eyes Melody (Les Yeux Noirs)

In this Django Reinhardt style video lesson, I teach the melody to the popular gypsy jazz anthem Dark Eyes, otherwise called Les Yeux Noirs. 

The melody is broken down and taught nice and slowly, and I cover the fingering, rhythm, and picking needed. You’ll see footage of both my fretting and picking hand where appropriate, allowing you learn this piece as easily as possible.

I hope you find this lesson helpful, and a nice taste of gypsy jazz! All the best.
