Douce Ambience Intro

Postby RICK-D15 » Mon Aug 23, 2004 5:08 pm

Can anyone tell me the chords to the intro of Douce Ambience? I found the chord tab in the tunes section, but there's no intro shown.

Thanks!

we talked about this in extreme detail in the Yahoo gypsyjazzguitar group only about 1 month ago. We also may have mentioned it in the gypsyjazzguitartechniqueandequipment group. Keep in mind that during the discussion on this group, we talked about various ways of doing it and in the end I "think" we came to a conclusion.

Thanks, djangology.

I used to have a yahoo membership at one time, long ago. I'm currently tied up in recovering my user ID/password red tape, but hopefully will be able to view the thread one of these days.

Thanks again,

Rick

Rick,

I think the key is to keep a high D as a pedal; i.e. work through the chords, finding voicings that always have a D as the highest note in the chord. Try this as a first chord, and follow your ears:

-x
-3
-2
-0
-x
-2

Good luck!
Jack.

Hi there !

I do the intro like this:

D7 Ebmaj7 E7 F6 Bb7 Ebmaj7 Am7 D7
-x----x----x----x----x----x----x----x
-x----x----x----x----x----x----x----x
-7----7----7----7----7----7----7----7
-4----5----6----7----6----5----5----4
-5----6----7----8----x----6----x----5
-x----x----x----x----6----x----5----x


with four strokes per chord. It seems to work ok, especially
when the other guitar-player joins in on the chords.......


Have a nice day!

Actually, that's about how we play it (we use a Bb6 instead of 7), with a chord hit then three high Ds. It's not the recorded version, but it works for us. Welcome aboard, Persen!

This may be kicking a dead horse, but as I'm currently practicing 'Douce Ambience' I thought I would provide what I think are the intro chords. I've read everyone's submissions (including the yahoo group), but was not 100% sure about the chords provided. Here's what currently works for me:

(starting from high E)

-x-
-3-
-5-
-4-
-x-
-5-

-x-
-6-
-7-
-7-
-x-
-6-

-x-
-7-
-7-
-6-
-x-
-7-

-x-
-8-
-8-
-7-
-x-
-8-

-8 or 6 - (optional)
-8-
-7-
-6-
-x-
-6-

-6- (optional)
-8-
-7-
-8-
-6-
-x-

-5- (optional)
-5-
-5-
-5-
-x-
-5-

-x-
-3-
-5-
-4-
-x-
-5-


I don't believe Django played the optional notes, but they sound ok.

If you want a different approach, how about Boulou and Elios' version from "For Django" ( I think that's the album of theirs I mean. They're young and stood against a brick wall on the cover. ) Not the famous Django version with the clarinet pedalling away, but that nice octave guitar line, I love it.
