Haven't heard it mentioned yet, so I hope most listeners can appreciate the fact that Django had virtually no use of the ring and pinky fingers on his left hand, so virtually all of the fretting by his left hand was done by his index and middle fingers only.  He found ways to compensate and bring out the same rich chords and melody that made him world famous.  Amazingly talented man!

This is the well-spring whence comes nearly all in the genre, including, unfortunately, the crap you no doubt like.

Freaking amazing. 
 
Has anybody seen Tony Gatlif's movie Swing? It's absolutely lovely and inspired by Django. If you like it, Gatlif's other movies are really worth watching too. They all revolve around music, mainly gypsy and Roma. Other favorites are Exils and Vengo. Enjoy :-)

Reindhardt and Eddie Lang are equal favorites.  And I really enjoyed the character reference to Reindhardt in the film "Triplets of Belleville" (great film for bicyclists!).
