      It's his ring finger and pinky that are messed up, right?
      It looks as though he frets with his ring finger every now and then, at least for chords.

      Pretty impressive.
      Do you think people will still be listening to Django 100 years from now?
      It seems likely to me.

              Hi Norsey, good to see you. I hope your having a nice holiday.

              Yeah, his ring finger and pinky. It happened when he was about 20, in a fire. Seems like nobody told him about it

              and yes, it looks like he uses them for playing chords.

              That quick run is classic Django stuff, chromatic slide with one finger on one string. To me it's the way he just casually drops it in there in such a
              laidback and lyrical setting.

                  Thanks much for this video. I had it on one of my old computers and then lost it when I switched.

                      Oh...puh-leeez!
                      Django has been dead for decades...Neil just plays that way...

                      Trust me, if Neil really wanted to, he could hire someone to teach him to do that...but it wouldn't be Neil...apples and cumquats, Oakie...
