Valse a Django

:lol:

Hi All,

I am working through Romane's transcription to "Valse a Django"
from his L'Esprit Manouche -

on page 233 bars 1,2,3 does anyone have any ideas on rh and lh fingering , I am finding it hard to obtain the speed and flow it requires,
also from page 241 (valse a Django), bars 3 and 4 agian the rh and lh fingering , please help .
I would love to see any thought on these ,
happy playing TAk
Tak

yes, personally i use a Frankenstein of the Romane version of this tune and also the Matelo Ferre version combined. there are different things i like about each one and if you cant quite get the Romane fingering on the B part, you might find the Matelo method easier. also, on just a few parts... i changed the transcription a bit to make it easier to remember and play...

you can find the Matelo version of Montagne Ste. Genevieve on the gypsyjazzguitar Yahoo group files section... as far as the chords go, i strongly prefer Colin Cosiminis chords for this tune...

also, on bars 1 and 2 of this song, starting on the low E note... use all downstrokes except when you play more than one note on a single string... in that case you can alternate picking. this is called the rest stroke technique i think...

I would finger the opening minor 9th arp using just the first and second fingers -

0 1 2 1 1 2 2 1 2 2 1 2

I hope that's good...I've gotta get an English-English dictionary.
