Djangology  Django Reinhardt

Because of Django's disfigurement of his left hand he effectively only had the use of
thumb, first and second digits. So he had to play chords using these only. It has been
though that he was able in some instances to bring his disfigured fingers into play. We
will be using all of ours.
Django had to find a method of playing chords with his disfigurement. So he substituted
normal fingering to triads.
The triad is an inherently easy chord to play, and when used imaginatively can be used
great effect. Especially at speed.
I don't know if you are familiar with these chords but they are essential to get that
feel.
They all can be transposed up and down the neck as required.
I've always found when learning chords that putting them into context with a tune makes
task a little easier. So I'll first show you the chord shapes to the tune:
