Anouman


For a printable version load the PDF file of this page. anouman.pdf

This is a version of one of my favourite Django tunes. Partly because it's not a nightmare to play.

Written in 1953 it is one of the last he wrote. I believe there is only one version recorded by Django and he only plays solo on the middle section. The main sections played by Hubert Fol on alto saxophone.

I have tried to show you how I play the "basic" melody, which is a cross between Django's and the Rosenberg Trio's versions. Any extra noodling is up to you. The chords used are both Gypsy and Standard.

Because of the very nature of TAB, don't take the timing as Gospel. The (6h7) in the 6th bar indicates multiple hammer on.
