I"m trying to work out Django's solo that he does for like the first 2 mins on Djangology. I have about the first 40 secs but i can't work out the very first bit that he plays with the violin. It sounds like a really obvious run or summit that he just moves down the neck, but i can't get it.
Any help would be great.

Also......he does a really fast run 23 secs in which i can't get, again any help would be appreicated.

If this is already tabbed somewhere and i am just wasting my time please tell me.
When the Robin Nolan books say they have the tab for djangology does that mean just the basic tune or exactly as it is on the record?
THanks for help with any of these questions. :D

there is a TableEdit transcription in GypsyGuitarDownload1 on Yahoo groups. its in 1 of the 2 zipped up TableEdit archives in the Files section. The file is called Django~1.TEF .

Also, there is a pure tablature book that was released this year called "Django Reinhardt - The Definitive Collection", which has the tab for this song but i dont have it with me and i cant comment on its accuracy, but i am sure the WHOLE song is tabbed in that book, not just the head.

Other than that, nobody has made any transcriptions that I know of. The Robin Nolan book only covers the basic HEAD of the tune, and not the original Django solo.

let us know if these end up being what you were looking for.

Well, I haven't checked those tabs, maybe those are better, but this is the way I would play that run at 0:24. It sure isn't the way Django played it, because I use all four fingers and find this fingering easiest....

You can get a demo download at:
Once you have that, you can find a bunch of Django tunes here:
Look for the Reinhardt1 and Reinhardt2 zip files. (Also lots of standards.)
