    Question: What is

    Answer: is a website dedicated to and with lots of Infos and News, videos and more about the issue of Gypsyjazz (Jazz Manouche, Sintiswing, Sintijazz etc.).

    On this website you can search and find all kinds of interesting information on the style like reading about news, cd-releases or dates from the Gypsyjazz-scene. We have built up the JM-Guitar-Gallery were you can take a look and research for about 1.800+ images about old Gypsyjazz-guitars like SelmerBusato, Favino and DiMauro. In our article-series Features of original Busato-Guitars, Features of original DiMauro-guitars, Features of original Favino-Guitars and Features of original Selmer-Guitars you may read about the detailed descriptions of these rare guitar-models with images and lots of backgroundinfos.
    In the JM-Download-Section users can download Grilles (Chord-charts), TABs and staff-transcriptions of well known Jazz- and Gypsyjazz-Songs. The more we offer Desktop-images, ringtones and rare Audio-recordings (just for Study) of famous Gypsyjazz-artist as (payed) download. Last but not least you may inform yourself about JM-history of the music and guitars, as of many infos on how to learn the style plus about our offered  Guitar-workshops and direct sign in if desired.

    Question: What´s the meaning of the word "JazzManouche"?

    The word "JazzManouche" is put together from two words: "Jazz" the english word for this musicstyle.
    "Manouche" is the french word for "Sinti, Gypsies, nomads". In France Gypsies always have been called "Manouches", "Bohemians" or "Sintis". "Jazz-Manouche" is the name for the musicstyle, Jazz that is played by Manouches (Gypsies).

    Question: Why this website

    To spread information and communication between all kinds of users, to interested people (wether musicians or not) in this musicstyle, no matter what nationality.
    Plus spreading acceptance and grow emphasis for JazzManouche, Gypsyjazz, Swing and the music of Sinti and Roma further on thus keeping it alive, but to always stay in respect with the old culture of Sinti/Manouche all the same. The growth of understanding between Manouches and Non-manouche (Gadje) is also one of our explicit goals.

    Question: Do i have to register at ?

    No. You dont have to be registered at to use our Website.
    Just if you want to access certain areas of JM-User-restricted content such as the notations of Licks-of-the-Month-area, the JM-Guitar-Gallery or the JM-Downloads, access the big-size-detail-images of the JM-Guitargallery, you have to be a registered and logged-in JM-User.

    2. JM-User-reserved but free content, which is only accessable if you are a registered JM-User. As a registered and logged-in JM-User you will get (free) access to all areas where we provide free user-reserved content.
    3. And third since 2015 we provide reserved content for our "paying registered JM-Users", users that want to help us make the website staying alive - as we do need to pay for all the cost.

  • Right of revocation acc. BGB § 312c

    info 128x128According to german law, explicit the german "Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch (BGB), since 2014-06-01 when offering Online-services according to BGB § 312c it is obliged to inform users and contract-partners about their right of revocation.

    Hereby we inform you about your right of revocation in conjuction with our contract in common. This right of revocation, which has to be read and confirmed by you by sending your registration for one of my services, is part of our contract.

    What are Online-Services?

    The german "Fernabsatzrecht" distinguishes between physical goods, services or digital content. Digital contents are for example Downloads.
    Servicecontracts are, according to Art. 2 Nr. 6 of the VRRL, contracts not for buying physical goods but contracts were the service-person or company is offering and delivering certain services on demand of the buyer and contract-partner, of which the user is paying any negotiated price for.

    Examples of these services are reparation services of any kind, Online-courses or the use of single-portals.

    Approval of termination of revocation-rights

    In these services mentioned above, the right of revocation vanishes as soon as the service-partner has fully delivered his service and/or the user has in advance declared his approval under binding law before accepting the beginning of service or before end of revocation period.

    If the user is revocing his contract before end of fully completion of the service in question, e.g. in time when his right not yet had ended, the user/contractpartner still is in charge of paying the parts of services that had been delivered until the day/hour of cancellation - if in advance he bindingly had demanded his servicepartner to begin the services before ending of revocation period, and secondly has been fully informed about his right of revocation in advance before demanding the services.

    No nessesary fullfilling of contracts no more of both contract-partners

    Since 2014-06-13 it is not nessesary that the contract has been perfectly fullfilled by the user/contract-partner to be revoced.
    The BGB-law in §356 Abs. 4.1 since the 2014-06-13 reads the following:

    "The revocation law also vanishes in a servicecontract if the servicepartner has fullfilled his service 100% and/or had started his service after the user/contractpartner has bindingly declared to know that he will loose the right of revocation by accepting the services to be started, and to know that in advance."

    Hereby i precautionary point out that by sending in your online-registration (for skype-lessons or Workshop)you declare that the services ordered by you should undoubtly and definately should start before the ending period of your revocation rights.

    Further you bindingly declare to know that by my fullfilling of the contract-subject (skype-lessons/workshop) you will loose your right of revocation (acc. BGB). And the more you declare that you have read, understood and fully accepted this right of revocation, the terms & conditions (for skype-lessons or Workshop) and our Privacy Policy undoubtly.

  • Widerrufsrecht gem. BGB § 312c

    info 128x128Gemäß dem deutschen Bürgerlichen Gesetzbuch (BGB) besteht seit dem 01.06. 2014 für Betreiber von Online-Dienstleistungen die Informationspflicht zum Widerrufsrecht gem. BGB § 312c für Verbraucher und Vertragspartner.

    Hiermit informieren wir Sie über die Ihnen zustehenden Widerrufsrechte im Zusammenhang mit dem zwischen uns zu schliessenden Vertrag. Dieses Widerrufsrecht welches von Ihnen vor Abschluss des Vertrages gelesen und bestätigt wurde ist damit Bestandteil unseres abgeschlossenen Vertrages.

    Was sind Dienstleistungen?

    Das Fernabsatzrecht unterscheidet zwischen Waren, Dienstleistungen und digitalen Inhalten. Digitale Inhalte sind z. B. Downloads.
    Dienstleistungsverträge sind gemäß Art. 2 Nr. 6 der VRRL Verträge, die keine Kaufverträge sind und nach denen der Unternehmer eine Dienstleistung für den Verbraucher erbringt oder deren Erbringung zugesagt und der Verbraucher hierfür den Preis zahlt oder dessen Zahlung gesagt hat.

    Beispiele dafür sind Reparaturdienstleistungen, Online-Kurse oder die Nutzung von Partnerbörsen.

    Zustimmung zum Erlöschen des Widerrufsrechts

    Bei Dienstleistungen erlischt das Widerrufsrecht, wenn der Unternehmer die Dienstleistung vollständig erbracht hat und der Verbraucher vorher seine Zustimmung zum Beginn der Ausführung der Dienstleistung vor Ablauf der Widerrufsfrist erteilt hat.

    Widerruft der Verbraucher den Vertrag vor der vollständigen Erfüllung, also wenn das Recht noch nicht erloschen ist, schuldet er Wertersatz für die bis zum Zeitpunkt des Widerrufs erbrachten Teilleistungen, wenn er vom Unternehmer ausdrücklich verlangt hat, dass dieser mit der Ausführung der Dienstleistung vor Ablauf der Widerrufsfrist beginnt und er auch korrekt über das Widerrufsrecht und den Anspruch auf Wertersatz belehrt wurde.

    Keine beiderseitige vollständige Vertragserfüllung mehr nötig

    Ab dem 13.06.2014 ist für das vorzeitige Erlöschen des Widerrufsrechts nicht mehr entscheidend, ob der Vertrag auch vom Verbraucher bereits vollständig erfüllt wurde.

    So heißt es in der ab dem 13.06.2014 geltenden Vorschrift des §356 Abs. 4.1:

    "Das Widerrufsrecht erlischt bei einem Vertrag zur Erbringung von Dienstleistungen auch dann, wenn der Unternehmer die Dienstleistung vollständig erbracht hat und mit der Ausführung der Dienstleistung erst begonnen hat, nachdem der Verbraucher dazu seine ausdrückliche Zustimmung gegeben hat und gleichzeitig seine Kenntnis davon bestätigt hat, dass er sein Widerrufsrecht bei vollständiger Vertragserfüllung durch den Unternehmer verliert."

    Hiermit weise ich forsorglich nochmals darauf hin dass Sie mit Absenden Ihrer Online-Anmeldung zustimmen und mit Ihrer Registrierung (zum skype-Unterricht bzw. Workshop) ausdrücklich verlangen, dass die von Ihnen in Anspruch genommene Dienstleistung (Unterricht/Workshop) ausdrücklich vor Ende der Widerrufsfrist mit der Ausführung der beauftragten Dienstleistung begonnen werden soll.

    Weiterhin bestätigen Sie, dass Ihnen bekannt ist, dass Sie bei vollständiger Vertragserfüllung durch mich Ihr Widerrufrecht (gem. BGB) verlieren. Und Sie erklären ferner dass Sie die hier vorliegende Widerrufsbelehrung, die Teilnahmebedingungen (AGB für den skype-Unterricht oder Workshop) und unsere Datenschutzerklärung gelesen und verstanden haben und sie ausdrücklich akzeptieren und bestätigen.

    With his new concept "Modular Gypsyjazz Guitar" Bertino Rodman has completely changed and re-structured his previous workshop "Masterclass for Gypsyjazzguitar".

    Inspired by the demands for follow-up classes of many participants and of his experience from previous workshops, the concept of his workshops have been changed into a new learning-system with 5 different closed-up modules, containing different skills and contents.

    This new Masterclass-concept is interesting for beginners of the style of Gypsyjazz/Jazz-Manouche, who would enter the workshop at Module 1 and run thru the whole Workshop, as well as advanced players of the style which could jump into entering at any certain level according to their own skills and interest.

  • Workshop "Modular Gypsyjazz Guitar" - mehr Infos

    kat liveDen Swing-Rhythmus des sog. "La Pompe" richtig zu beherrschen ist oft schwieriger als es sich im ersten Moment anhört. Dies liegt in erster Linie an der verwendeten Anschlagstechnik welche sich sehr von der gewohnten Art Saiten anzuschlagen unterscheidet, dabei aber ganz wesentlich zum autenthischen Sound beiträgt.

    Viele denken am Anfang dass es sich beim JazzManouche-Rhythmus doch nur um ein wenig "boum-chack" handelt und man das ganz schnell lernen kann. Dass es aber in dieser Rhythmik sehr viele verschiedene feine Facetten, ja sogar höchst unterschiedliche "Spielarten" gibt, ist genauso vielen nicht bekannt.

    bertino 2014 03Aber auch bei der Solotechnik gibt es grosse Unterschiede im Gypsyjazz zu den sonst oft gewohnten Anschlags- oder Spieltechniken, grade und im Besonderen für Gitarristen die aus anderen Stilrichtungen (z.B. Blues, Rock, Pop) zu dieser Musik kommen.
    Es sind andere Skalen und Arpeggien, andere Läufe und Tricks die im Gypsyjazz verwendet werden - all das soll in diesem Workshop, zumindest ansatzweise, vermittelt werden.

    Ein solides Grundwissen über Skalen und Akkorde sollte ein Interessent dieses Workshops daher also schon haben. Weiteres musikalisches Wissen bzw. Grundkenntnis von Jazz ist zwar von Vorteil aber keine Bedingung. (Siehe auch die Teilnahmebedingungen hier). Hier findet Ihr den genauen Kursaufbau im Detail und noch weitere detaillierte Infos zum Workshop hier.

    Es werden während der Masterclass alle notwendigen Techniken, Skalen und Tricks zumindest soweit vermittelt, dass die Teilnehmer ein gutes Rüstzeug haben sollten um diese Musik anschliessend mit Freude und Spass weiter für sich entdecken zu können und auch weiter in der richtigen Richtung an ihrer Spieltechnik zu arbeiten.

    Oder wie mal ein bekannter Gypsyjazzgitarrist sagte: "... die ersten 30 Jahre im Gypsyjazz sind die schwersten... vor allem wenn man in die falsche Richtung läuft!"
    Anmeldungen· für die jeweils kommende Masterclass sind bereits jetzt möglich.

    Die genauen Workshop-Termine werden nach entsprechender Anmeldung der Teilnehmeranzahl den Teilnehmern direkt bekannt gegeben.
