Blue drag

Hi,
I bought Gypsy rhythm and it is a great book with lot of material.

I am currently interested in a song (not in the book): Blue Drag recorded by Django Reinhardt in 1935.
Does anybody knows an accurate version of the accompaniement?

I tried the one given in the thread
http://www.djangobooks.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1309
But it seems to me it is not exactly the one of the recording of Django, especially on the B part (in Gm).

A more specific question is that I wonder if it is a kind of progression which is in the book Gypsy rhythm? Or something similar?

I would be very grateful if someone could help me, and sorry if I am posting in the wrong thread.

    That version is almost right. Replace the E half diminished with an A7, and both the Gm 's with G dim 's and you got it. I learned it from a powertab i down loaded somewhere on the net. Can't be that hard to find. Good luck

    I tried to transcribe the line bass and it seems to go much better along with your version of the accompaniment.
    Many thanks!
