this is pure magic m8!
After listening to this, I looked up the original. And I have to say, I like your version better!
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 :-)
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!
i can only give 8 because i've heard better but you made it your own i respect that.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
