Rather than the all encompassing interpretations I normally do — this can be considered an instrumental version of the original Django theme.  I was eager to use my Dolce guitar to capture Luis Bacalov’s very deliberate sounding major and minor bar chords.  This is also the first time I’ve used a guitar pick on this blog since Apertura!

I love this soundtrack so you can bet I’ll be doing more from it in the next few days.  

(Note: This is an extremely comprehensive tab, however you will need to know how to play basic major and minor bar chords before you begin.)

Although the original is slightly tuned up, I’ve played this version of Django in standard tuning.
