Masters in Mechanics: The Joscho Stephan Interview

Joscho takes Gypsy founding father Django Reinhardt’s famous adaptation of downward pickslanting mechanics and enhances it with his own turbocharged take on high-speed playing.

In the interview, we discuss the classic Gypsy flexed-wrist approach to forearm rotation, including a closeup look at Joscho’s amazing chord tremolo, multi-downstroke arpeggios and scales, and more. And we also discuss Joscho’s thoroughly modern two-way sweeping and legato passages that would be equally at home on any rock stage.

The Joscho Stephan Interview includes:

  • Joscho Stephan Interview — 1.5 hours on core elements of the Django style, including the rest stroke, forearm rotational picking, chord tremolo, multi-downstroke arpeggios and scales, two-way sweeping, and more
  • Example licks — 60+ slow-mo video examples
  • Complete tablature in Guitar Pro + PDF
