    Hi dudes,

    It's been a few months since I recorded a home video. Here's one I did today. It's Django's "Nuages" as a short chord melody. I often make my own arrangements and they are usually pretty straightforward.

    Sweet! The video got done in a bout 15 seconds as the audio played at normal speed. It was like John Mclaughlin playing it ;)

    Playing wise though, excellent job on one of the most beautiful songs EVER written.

    That one almost always brings a tear to my eye, which is one of the reasons I haven't been able to sit through learning it. Seriously.

    Thanks for that tune this morning though, it should have a great effect on my day :)

    Glad you like it. It's one of the most hauntingly beautiful melodies ever indeed! Sorry to hear the video did not run that well ...

    Here's a Flash version that probably works better:

    jazzerman, I love the way you play this song. Everything sounds so good and clean.The tone reminds me of Joe Pass, I remember hearing a record Joe made with bassplayer Red Mitchell where Joe has a really nice sound, similar to yours. Tell me what strings and amplifier you use on this video.
    I had a Es-175 which I traded for a 335 a couple of years ago. I have to
    get me another one now!!

    Hi Jonos,

    The ES 175 has a set of 0.12 flatwounds on it. The guitar I play through an amp modeller (Digitech RP 300 preset "jazz") for silent recording with a head set. It sounds just like my Polytone amp that I use live.
