Transcription: In a Sentimental Mood (Django Reinhardt 1937) w/ tab

I love this solo, and I could never find a transcription that I was happy with. Mine is still not 100% but it's getting closer.

My performance is also not 100% accurate to the transcription ! - it's still hard for me to play even at this tempo.

Django's finger-style intro is included in the tabs, though I do not play it in the video.

    Hey Andrew, nice work! Thanks.

    Hey Mando, don't you mean "alternate facts"? :-)

    There is a really good transcription in "Django Reinhardt" by Stan Ayeroff. Part of The Jazz Masters Series.

    Yes Bones, I don't have my Trumpisms quite right. Agree Teddy. I borrowed heavily from Stan's book and also used software to slow it down and isolate passages.

    Ah I should be clearer - I have seen good enough transcriptions of just the notes (a lot of this arrangement is based off of Benjamin Givan's note-only transcription) but I was never happy with the tabs/fingerings that I'd seen.

    There are a lot of parts here that could be played multiple ways if you are only trying to hit the right notes, but don't feel right to me unless played a certain way - even though the notes may be correct.

    I still would be interested to see your version, mandocat. :)
