For the basic chords (i.e., not-necessarily-Django), check Ralph's page:

Always a good resource...

Nice old album cover that!
Couldn't help but notice one thing. This takes us back to poor Shepoid's tale of woe over his D'A, I think: Note the shim :?:

I'm wondering if I need one too. At first it seemed to be a low-humidity problem, when the action had dropped. Well, that's be resolved. Yet the hi-E still doesn't play, up around the 7th to 10th frets: buzzing & dead tone. Perhaps I ought to fashion a shim for going under the treble side? It wouldn't take much, a sliver of higher action. Any suggestions for material?

Django was using a Paris Metro ticket in that photo.

I've used a popsickle strick cut up, they're made of spruce. I've also used little scraps of rosewood. Mondine & Ninine used to use what appeared to be toothpicks...it really doesn't matter.

When I needed a shim, my usual luthier gave me some stuff for free...it can't hurt to ask.

Thanks one and all. And it appears this is far more common than I first thought. (Im afraid there's no Metro in N Maine, so I'll have to figure out something else.)
