Play gypsy jazz rhythm on the octave mandolin. I show you the chords for Blues For Ike by Django Reinhardt in this video. This tune is a 12-bar blues with an interesting twist.

The chord progression is in A and uses the major chord instead of the conventional dominant 7th chord. This tune demonstrates how you can play the “la Pompe” rhythm on both mandolin and octave mandolin.

Sheet music, tabs, and audio tracks for this tune you’ll find in Mandolin Secrets Academy.
