Here is a video to learn the gypsy jazz tune, "Minor Swing."

And it's very easy; There is only 1 position to learn. You will then be able to accompany soloists, your own improvisations or play with Django (I advise you the version of 1937 to start).

e|--------------------------
B|--------------------------
G|-------5------------------
D|-------4------------------
A|-------X------------------
E|-------5------------------

G|-------5------------------
D|-------4------------------
A|-------X------------------
E|-------5------------------
