Does any one have an arrangement and melody for the song "La Mer" (Beyond the Sea)?

    I have a transcription of Bireli Lagrene's version of the basic melody, which I use as a reference guide if I forget a small part or something. I've also transcribed Django's solo on "La Mer" from the 1949 Rome sessions if you need that as well (such a beautiful solo as well I might add). I have the transcriptions available in both Powertab and PDF, so if your interested just let me know what format you want and I'll post them. 8)

    Here's a lead sheet in the key of F - I think that is what you were looking for.

    Thank you Shawn, PDF. I have "Sidewinder" and "Splanky" chord charts to trade. My Professor in Jazz is accommodating me by incorporating "La Mer." With your help, I will be able to expose others to the sound. Thank you. I wish I had more to offer, but as of yet, I have not acquired many charts.

    Thank you Klaatu, it will help nicely. I just printed, and noticed that it has chords and main melody. It is a great copy and will work for training.

    It's in the django fakebook (link in the Links for Rookies thread in the Gypsy 101 forum if you don't already have it)

    Stuart, the link is great. Thank you.
