Fantastic version of that song. No wonder he was BB kings favorite guitar player playing a strait blues like that!!
Can you imagine if Django had lived a little longer they may have made a collaboration. That would have been very interesting.

In my view the best version of the song--it neatly sums up all the best ideas from the earlier versions--interesting that Django wasn't afraid to use ideas from years earlier--its almost as if the whole 'solo' is the 'head'.
You may be interested to know that a complete transcription of this 1949 version of Minor Blues in standard notation and tab plus mp3 audio files at 3 different speeds is available at our website.
