(What Would Django Do?)
Has anyone here tried to tackle Nuits De St-Germain-Des-Prés
with 2 fingers? What do you put, 2 notes on E string, or B string? Or both, perhaps? Playing over the top 3 strings, like several current players do, doesn't seem to give the right feel. I'm starting to wonder whether Django may have used "the claw" for the highest note, and put 2 notes on each of E and B strings.
In the past I've kinda faked it just by playing wrong notes, put minor 9th arpeggios instead of minor 7th, it does change the colour somewhat but still sounds alright. Now I'm starting to think it's rude to change a guy's melody just to make things a bit more ergonomic.
Anyway, interested to hear your thoughts if you've studied this tune
