The Two Fingered Jazz Guitarist...Django Reinhardt

Jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt was an incredible jazz guitarist,and without even mentioning the hurdles he had to overcome,amazing.He is ranked up there with Charlie Christian and other great jazz guitarist.There is a nice article about "Django"(Jango) at the Jazz Guitar Gazette...

Jean "Django" Reinhardt was a Gypsy jazz guitarist from Belgium, who can be easily considered one of the top 5, all time influential guitarists in history. He is arguably equal to Charlie Christian, but in terms of the pre-electric era, Django reigns as the number one catalyst.
...he could only use his first two fingers to fret notes, while his burnt fingers were barely able to fret notes on the first two strings only....
