Hi Gang,

I just downloaded a Django movie clip. He is sitting, guitar in hand. His bandmates are playing cards as the movie projector scans by and then Grapelli is playing the violin. My point? Does anyone know the tune that they are playing? I'm still too new at it to recognize it. I got it from 'WinMX'. Anyway, your help would be most appreciated. :)

Take care,

DJ

the song is J'Attendrai (sometimes called Tornerai) ... that video clip can be purchased as part of the "stephane grapelli" documentary on DVD... thats pretty much the first video clip that people see with Django in it... we have all seen it many times already... the chords and melody are in one of the Robin Nolan chord books...

:D Thank you so much. I knew I could count on the gypsy jazzers to come through and thankfully, I just happen to have that Nolan book (vol 4). I just hadn't put the two together.

Take care,

DJ
