Jean “Django” Reinhardt the man who is supposed to have invented the Gipsy Jazz Genre was said to be irresponsible with money and unstable due his gambling problem. But if there is anything to be said about the father of Jazz Guitar is that even if he showed up in a concert hall with just one person he would always put on his best performance. Django received his first banjo from a neighbour when he was 12 years old and taught himself how to play the instrument. Despite illiteracy he managed to excel when it came to playing and learning music and other instruments despite having been told that he would never play another stringed instrument again after been badly burnt in a fire. As Djanjo invented his own guitar playing method with a distinctive sound that still sounds great all these years later.
