Wow! Amazing video. I'm a complete newbie to Guitar and I found this video to be very inspirational. I only started taking lessons a few months ago at the www.NYGuitarAcademy.com...but I am already feeling very confident and it's people like Django Reinhardt that I aspire to play like someday. Maybe I'll ask one of my instructors if he can teach me some of his music.

Thanks for this, it's difficult to sift through all of the Django information out there and this is really helpful!
