This is my arrangement of Minor Swing by Django Reinhardt. I performed and recorded all guitars and bass, with Dan on drums, but take no credit for composition. One of the most traditional jazz songs for guitar! I love it!

this is pure magic m8!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very good!

After listening to this, I looked up the original. And I have to say, I like your version better!

joeymofo responds:

Thank you! You must also realise there is no 'original' as Django had recorded at least 3 different versions of this tune which vary greatly. The version I play here is based on the Johnny Depp cover of it in the film Chocolat :-)


Rated 4 / 5 stars


the only thing jazz about this is the drums, the guitar is latin the bass is more like popy all it does is play the roots, to be jazz in needs to walk (i play bass in a studio jazz band) its understandable that you drums arent latin to match the guitar, latin percussion is very difficult.

never the less its still a good song, just not jazz.

Hey mate, do you know what style it is? It's Manouche, if there was a manouche section I would put it in that!

There are so many words flowing through my head right now, some of them profane, trying to put themselves together to describe how great this version sounds

Lol! Thank you so much. I am really tempted to do a new version now that I can play the chords in the proper Manouche style that Django used himself!
