Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Synyster Gates plays gypsy jazz

Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Synyster Gates recently conducted a "master class" for Guitar Center in Hollywood, CA during which he expressed his interest in gypsy jazz. He demonstrates some in the video below.

I haven't listened to Avenged Sevenfold since their Sounding the Seventh Trumpet album, so I'm obviously out of touch when it comes to the musical abilities of the band's members, but for some reason I didn't think that Gates was as good a guitarist as he is. Moreover, I can respect anyone even moderately successful in emulating Django Reinhardt.

Yeah, there is a lot of talent in that band that goes overlooked by Lambgoaters who would rather see their van flipped or their moms beatd or some shit. WHile the new stuff isn't my thing, it's well written.

How was this talent? Fast fingers do not equal well-played jazz. Django wasn't this sloppy. This wad is no Knoppler
