About a year ago I transcribed this marvellous solo, but I didn’t get around to learning it and recording it until the last couple of days.  There’s some great melody here and it’s another example of Django’s brilliant musicality and gestural approach to his solos.

The main challenge is the speed of this one, particularly in the second chorus (the signature chromatic run, for instance) but the first chorus is very restrained with a focus on melody and phrasing.  You can download the TAB here:  Them There Eyes Django (Solo).
