NUAGES by Django Reinhardt
tablature by Jonathan Byrd
This is a simple chord-melody arrangement of one of Django's best-known, and most beautiful compositions.
My notation is pretty standard, and shouldn't require much explanation. Above each tab chart I have listed the chord changes, and the places where the downbeats fall. Two chords have been marked with the note "trem" to indicate that I like to tremolo pick those chords. Django's tremolo picking was so fast and dynamic that he could create swelling crescendos much like a horn section. The picking technique is kind of like shaking out a match. I sometimes play this song fingerstyle, too. Some of the chords are tough to flatpick because of muted strings in the middle of fretted strings.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.
